I kid you not, I do 15 minutes of painting on this picture then have to wait a day for it to dry. I'm liking the way it's coming out though. The instructor is doing it on a 6x8 card, I'm doing it on 16x20 canvas so I'm having to make minor changes to compensate for the size. I can't imagine how anybody can paint a picture on a 6x8 card. Those bigger round yellow flowers are just underpainted there will be detail on top.
FanKi that's why I work on several projects at once. While one is drying I work on another painting. I add Alkyd medium to my paints which makes it dry faster, usually over night. Before I was doing that I had to wait as long as a week sometimes two weeks for something to dry.
