Having just recently joined OPAS found this topic very interesting. While "showing" the unfinished work after the day of painting; an observer approached inquiring if I felt the painting was finished. No, the work was not finished after the 6 hours; too large a canvas and only surface capture of atmosphere. He went on to inquire what the "price" of the unfinished work would be vs the price of the piece finished. Having next to no experience answered the same price. He chuckled and walked away. (Felt this would be only fair and that this gave the client the option to suggest changes). To this day am still confused and wonder if didn't shoot myself in foot for credibility.
