Thanks for hosting Bonnie, I thought I would give your garden a go today. I originally tried to do the monochrome challenge and started off with raw umber and gesso, got into a bit of a mess and added ultramarine blue. Got so frustrated with it that I stopped at 40 minutes and this was the result

I then decided to add colour but because I had printed off the photo in grey scale and I was too lazy to come back upstairs to print off a coloured copy I ended up with this after another 40 minutes. It is canvas board measuring 8 x 10 inches and the total time taken was 1 hour 20 minutes.

I really like the painterly, loose interpretation Christine. It almost feels like you painted it in person which is very hard to achieve.
