The first pic is at just under two hours. The second pic is at 2.5 hours. I was able to do 10 minutes here and there before my toddler noticed I was missing each time. He looks for me at my computer desk, in the bathroom, and then in my art room. In that order. :p

This is Sennelier OP's on Wallis, somewhere in the neighborhood of 7" x 8" I think. There are a few more things I'd like to do to this, but I better just post it and move on to something else, for now. I had fun playing with these particular colors!

Stoney, thanks for the wonderful pictures and so many to choose from!

I can't believe I nearly missed seeing this because it already popped over to the next page ! I'm so glad I get to see it now, it is incredibly warm and timeless in these gorgeous colours. And I like the way my eyes and then the rest of me, wants to walk out the portal to the distance beyond. Very pretty painting ! :clap: :clap: So when does the toddler get his own crayons and join mommy in creative endeavors ??

You're very welcome, Christi. Sounds like there were several of interest to everyone to choose from. That's what I was trying for. :)

I like the first one the best... It has an unfinished look, I'm not sure
if you were trying to go for that but I like it. That gives it an interesting composition.
