Acrylics on canvas, 40x40". C&C welcome!

First the work in progress
I use an 8x8"grid to draw the subject.


Then after 2 more hours the finished painting.

I'm with Ian on this. I've got 5 or 6 hours on my little 8' X 10" strawberry and still struggling with it. How in the world does one get the kind of talent to complete such beautiful compositions as this painting? And in such a short period of time.

A 40X40/8 hour painting...holy cow!! Is that speed painting or what? That is 3.3 minutes/sq. inch :D

It looks great.

Really stunning work on the skin and the dress. I can hear the crumpling sound of the fabric.

8 hours!!! yikes, that's fast. I love it. Almost a watercolor effect and yes the dark hard lines are good. Great job and subject matter.

WOW.....I can't believe it took you so long to paint this Connie!!!! LOL

Speed painters seldom overwork anything. And your work, Connie, is always fresh and vibrant. If you'd spent more time on it (and there is no need to) you'd lose the life, energy and power you've caught here!!

Thank you all so much!!:thumbsup:
I Always was a speed painter. That's because I don't have the patience and I'm easily satisfied :wink2:
Valri 's right. I used to do canvasses this size in half this time (my cows)
