Glad I could get to participate. Sorry it's late, just got back form my holidays and what with loads of unpacking, my OH off on a visit to his folks and my son staying with me everything has been somewhat chaotic.

This is also the reason I lost track of time and was unable to do any of my usual progress shots. So I have no idea how long it took. I started it (sort of- the planning stage) Sunday then painted a bit Monday night while son was out and finished it last night when he was out again....


I mixed Joel's friend with his arms outstretched with the coy Groper, trying to hide away and had the diver heading for him ready for a huge hug....
