Helen (my wife) also paints, and is just finishing up a vacation / painting week. Here is a look at her easel area, and 3 quick snapshots of her work.
She used two sizes of canvas, the largest is roughly 36" wide, I believe. She worked "alla prima", the wet-on-wet somehow appropriate for these underwater scenes. She works much differently than I, laying out large areas of tube paint on her palette to mix on the spot.
These are finished, still wet, only needing signing. Each took approx 6 hours of painting, more or less...

These quick photos don't do justice to the chroma of the paintings, of course, but they give some idea of the finished piece.
She wanted to work looser than usual with these, more of a "feel" than a pebble by pebble painting...

Great workspace. Really challenging subjects to paint.
Water soluble paints seem appropriate.

It is great to see two people that share the same love, but express themselves so independently of each other. You both do wonderful work. Judy

Very nice studio -- looks so clean. I like the floor also, I have carpet in my room with tarps on the floor, makes it a little challenging for walking around, even though I have them taped down to the carpet. Helen also has a nice window to get the natural light. Great Place to Work!
