Two Princesses

This was the largest of the fast paintings, and also where I came up against the realization I was not charging the right amount for these fast studies, and really undercutting myself. I didn't realize they would be so popular (I had 14 people sign up for them before I cut off the sign-ups, and I was getting fatigued.) It's also where I realized I don't want to be a pet portrait artist. I already knew that, but it drove it home for me. I'm all for folks who love it and make their living at it, but it's just not for me long term. Perhaps occasionally to fill my financial gaps, here and there. 

This is 8x10, oil on canvas panel... more of a two-day alla prima (so not in one sitting, so not a true alla prima I guess, but it was still wet the next morning when I finished it. About 8 hours in total.)
