This is my second painting with Mark as a mentor. (Photo on the left, canvas on the right) I'm actually pretty pleased with how this 20x16 piece is going but I've painted the entire thing so far with Winsor & Newton Monarch Round #00's. This is the smallest brush I have and while I am pleased with the finished portion, it is taking forever. I just painted six bricks this evening and it took 90 minutes. I have the canvas and the palettes and the brushes in the refrigerator over night but I'm still worried that it might dry too quickly. Should be finished in time for the 4th of July. Patience is not something I've had much of in the past. Mark has taught me I'd better be patient indeed.
