She's right. Stop looking, set it up and do the work.
11:30 start 16 x 20 windy dressed fine. no problem. sunny then overcast. just fine.
3:00 end 3:45 home 72 degrees varnished piece
I kept at it even though the light was changing. The piece has too much information. Lots of detail was processed. The end result got dark in the mid-range. I'm trying to guess ahead.
The good news is that I did work today. And will probably get a handle on it if I keep at it.
