More progress on Sushi #4

After work, I was able to paint for about an hour and a half. It's a great way to relax after a 12 hour shift in the ICU.

Sushi #3

Here's the progress photo of Sushi #3. I still have about 2 more hours worth of work to go before I can call this one finished. This was my first attempt at using this particular kind of support. It is supposed to be very nice to work on. I mess up while toning it and mixed burnt umber with quick-drying white and spread it with a palette knife. I am very unhappy with the results and will certainly not do that again.
