Left the portrait-thingy for a while for an urge to paint some nature ;)
This is how far I got in 3 hours. Ill post more WIPs as I go along. And hopefully Ill have a finished piece as well to show eventually... The problem with me is though that I get fed up with the paintings when I am _almost_ finished....

Oils, Painter 9, 3 hrs

I would leave the ocean alone with the beach it's reaally beautiful in itself. I can't believe you did this in only three hours!.... :clap: :clap: :clap:

Okay Sara... we're with you, and determined that you finish. Keep going!

I really will try :D
But dont you ever feel that when you have reach a certain point and the details are almost there and its just the finishing touch that is needed, that you want to go on to the next one? I find that a the end of a painting when Ive learned some new techniques or refined the ones I have, that I want to start fresh (and maybe better :rolleyes: )

But Ill give it a go... Thanks for the cheering!

Believe me... I know the feeling all to well. It usually strikes me about mid way through... it's like I have ADD when it comes to painting sometimes. I summons my will and find a way to keep going... then at about 3/4's of the way through, I start to smell the finish line and get a second wind. I'd guess this happens to lots of artists... maybe at different stages in the process.

You're not alone.

Sara, that's Jack!...you're really nailing this one. Great job on the clothing too! You might want to tone down her teeth a shade or two. Nice!... I'll be back.

P.S. This is from the movie "Something's Gotta Give", right?
