More is Better
"More is Better" because at the start, I put more paint onto the canvas, which also had, already, a surface layer of dried paint (an older portrait study). This made for a very different experience than applying thin layers of paint on the typical stark white and unyielding canvas I usually start with (no, I never remember to tint a canvas ahead of time). This was a lot more fun and seemed to hold more creative possibilities.
Also, more is better in terms of painting the same model. Fourth time around with this model...and finally a straight-on view. Three more sessions, so excited about this one.
