This was certainly a challenge for me Sue, thank you.
I tried to portray the chaos in the photograph, great fun.
It took just under 2 hours

Watercolour on Saunders Waterford 140lb paper 7" x 11"

Beautiful painting. I didn't even think about the chaos of this reference. You are spot on with that. I love your use of hard and soft edges on this piece.

I agree Rachel - all I saw were greens and fence posts - you created beauty from this ref.
