Don't draw more in the morning than you can erase in the afternoon (Old Draughtsman's saying)

I use two flash units..one on camera and the other remotely controled...each bouncing of the ceilings and walls in room for very soft light. I block sides of the flashes so not direct flash hits the painting.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.
