This is awesome! How many hours do you end up putting into something this size? I've yet to attempt anything bigger than 9 x 12!
I have never been good at keeping track of my time. I always meant to get a stop watch to figure it out. I spend about 2.5 weeks on portraits like these... about a week longer than when I was working on suede or velour. This paper is more labor intensive. I like that I can get more details in... but the time....! When I get that stop watch I will let everyone know how much time I put into them.
When you get that stop watch, you'll probably not want to know how many hours you spend LOL! I can see it's a labor of love and if you're like me, time loses all meaning while working on any of your paintings!
You are probably right!!! I most likely have been avoiding that stop watch for a reason!!
