YDI, and FHL. You shouldn't have been "vigorously" putting on primer to the point where you're spraying it everywhere. Learn how to not act like a jackass in the studio, and until you do, stay the hell away from other people's work.

I feel like this is more like Fuck her Life..since you ruined her work. if you were smart you would have taken a rag and imminently dabbed the primer off..you probably could have saved her a helluva lot of grief. This is why I hate sharing studios with idiots.

um, artkid, if you're so brilliant and experienced, shouldn't you know that it could be oil paint on that canvas? If the OP rubbed it with a rag, she could have COMPLETELY fucked up the painting by blurring everything, instead of just throwing a few specks on it. The OP should be honest and upfront with the other artist. It sucks, but you should have been more careful and you have to take responsibility.

of course I'm aware of that, which is why I suggested they DAB the primer with a rag...not rub it. the corner of a cotton rag would have soaked up the majority of the primer before it had a chance to set on the oil paint. maybe you should read the what i said before mocking me.

Actually 33- I'm pretty sure the Mona Lisa only took 3 years over all, but sorry if I'm wrong (I don't know that much about art) . Either way, I agree, true art takes time

Well, considering her painting wouldn't have been close enough to mess up to begin with if it had been in a more appropriate place and the observation that you should've thought to move it or deal with your priming in a more appropriate spot, you both were rather negligent. Pathemata mathemata - learn it well.

Typically advanced students and beginners don't have class together, therefore I am assuming the advanced student's work was simply sitting on their easel where it was supposed to be. It was ENTIRELY the other person's fault for being reckless and ignorant.

during the last quarter of last year, the "advanced" and "beginner" people shared a room on my course, though it ended up being the advanced people who caused the most trouble

If you paint on a canvas that isn't primed the paint will just soak through because canvas is clothe. Primer acts as a barrier between the canvas and the paint. It's white and usually leaves huge streaks if you try to wipe it off.
