I've been caught out too often and handed in wet oil paintings protected, thankfully, by glass. So the idea is to have a few ready to go and dry! And leave them alone which is the difficult part.
At the moment I've got 3 paintings laid in and waiting for some sort of next step.
How they'll look at the end I've no idea as paintings seem to go their own way. I can never visualize the finished result , I don't plan. I just get inspired and need to paint.
Hopefully there'll be a reasonably happy ending!
But that means coming up with some interesting titles.
