I had such a good time hanging out with my artist friends today and painting on Ustream.tv. I took this quick photo in the little mirror to the left of my easel and posted it just before I started painting, so folks could sort of see what my reference was. The surface is an 8" x 10" canvas panel from Utrecht. It was a two hour session, so a bit slapdash. I suppose I could fiddle with the painting to make it more "accurate" but I think I'll leave it as it is.
Thank you to those of you who kept me company and added so much to the fun!
