A few photos I took of my wife lately and a landscape.
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.

You are lucky in that your wife is both beautiful and a willing model... And as for the landscape it's so beautiful that I thought  at first that it was a painting! :clap:and  :2funny:
