Dowager Duchess to Tea

I remember reading how Singer Sargent would paint fast and with a sure hand. Ive been trying to work fast and even faster. We are lucky if we have 2 hrs to paint a figure and once I get home I cannot seem to 'finish 'them and tend to mess up. So I end up with oil sketches and here is one of Kathleen Mitchell modelling her antique clothing. She seemed very Dowageryish and Duchessy to me. Although if you know Kathleen, you will agree she is not in the slightest bit frightening
