This big painting was a great deal of fun because these are 2 of my favorite subjects and I know them both well.  I began with a rough sketch on Day 1, laid in some sloppy washes and blocked in forms.  On Day 2, I did some botanical parts and hair texture on both models and finally on Day 3 (yesterday) I did the easier parts–flowers and clothing.  All in all my biggest challenge was to leave it alone and call it finished.  It is a good thing today is the show deadline!!
