No sense painting, if you have too little time,says Schmid. I didn't have much time today. I had two doctor appointments nearly back to back. But I did manage to squeeze in an hour in the AM and a half hour in the PM. With a painting that's well underway, that's enough to define a few things, work out a few values, scrutinize how it's going. Steve and Zac was just the painting for today's schedule. I made a little progress, but had to keep a lid on it. Working too fast in a short a period of time is the biggest reason we make mistakes and have to spend unnecessary time making corrections. Schmid's warning makes a lot of sense.
Tomorrow, I have another appointment, but it's in the morning. Steve and Zac will get a session of reasonable length in the PM. I schedule all my check ups in September or October. I do not like being dragged out of the house/studio when the temps fall and the snows come. With a reasonable number of hours to spend, Zac's shirt will become more of a shirt, his hair more hair-like and Steve should become more Steve.
