Both of these paintings were done in one day.  The top was done at night under a lamp, the bottom was done during the daylight.  Foggy or cloudy days are great for painting because the light stays so consistent.  My light source, a window, faces East so on sunny days the light can be quite variable.  I usually wait till about 11:30 am to start and then I am racing to finish by sunset.

Finally got the film scanned of this shot.  It gives you an idea of my set up.  You can view this painting in a previous post.
