Lapwork

The Canadian artist Robert Genn writes about the advantages of doing 'lapwork' in his July 11th newsletter. http://clicks.robertgenn.com/lapworking.php

Genn enumerates reasons why its a good idea to practice such close up work.
You ACEO fans know that I'm a regular practitioner of painting watercolors in my lap while on long car rides. It not only helps me fight boredom and makes use of otherwise idle time but there is an intimacy with the work to be had with such a hands on approach.

Here's a photo of me last April, in the passanger seat, somewhere along I-80, with a sheet of freshly painted ACEO's - painted while we drove through Pennsylvania.

Great shot! Looks like you did a little face painting too. ;-D
