How long does it take you to get an average creation?
I would say an average creation takes me approximately a week from start to satisfied completion. I tend to get close to finished, then let a painting rest.. After looking at it for a few days, I can see what I do and do not like, and usually I am able to correct or finish the artwork. Another helpful tool in knowing when a painting is finished is looking at it in the computer. For some reason, I can see things that are not right very quickly when looking at a WIP=work in progress in the computer. A very helpful tool.
