Small study for water series

I have an early class tomorrow, so I need to be brief.

The next portrait I'm doing in the water series
is of a model I have painted many times. She's
brought me good luck in so many ways in my
art career, and I'm delighted to be painting her

I bought a stretched canvas for her portrait, but
it isn't quite right for the series, so I'll pick another
one up tomorrow, and start.

Here's a fast sketch I did of her to get me thinking
about the painting. Don't worry I haven't forgotten
the first one, I just thought you might need a change.

Have a looking-forward-to-starting-something-new day.

Nice. I'd probably get more work done if I had more than one piece going at a time. I'm amazed at how much work you get done on several fronts.
