I have to admit sometimes I stay up too late. I'll be painting and lose track of time. That happened to me while I was painting Duet.
I took my time as I was painting the glass vase. Every stroke mattered. The shadows cast by the flowers and vase were painted with a gentle hand. The petals of the carnations were created with my palette knife.
When I woke up the next morning I went in to see my painting. I nodded my head, yes.
One more thought - I took a few pictures as I painted. The Making of Duet - Slideshow Video.
