That was fun. But I threw it on the scanner before it was fully dry. Oops!

Welcome, Regina, just thought I'd take a quick break from my painting....You picked a great photo to work with. I like all the nice texture going on with the signs. :clap:

It doesn't appear that any harm was done to the painting with it still damp. Of course, I don't know about the scanner.... :D

This came out very nicely. I especially like how you did the shadow under the car. I also like how you can see the customer walking in front of the car through the windshield.

Very effective - I also like the way you can see the figure through the windscreen - nice detail. :clap:

I'm so glad somebody used this photo! Regina, you've done a wonderful job with this! I'm amazed anyone could do such a complex scene in just two hours in watercolor. I really love the way you've done the signs - you're very good at indicating text, without literally painting it. The shadow under the awning is perfect. Great job!

This is coming along very nicely. What a complex photo to paint in such a short time, yet you have captured all the important aspects of this.

How difficult to paint in such a short time, it would take me days I think. It is lovely, with all those colors and different objects. Very good. :D

Great job! The 'incidental' figures are particularly good. :)

I love the looseness of this. It fits the lazy warm afternoon type feel where one would expect someone hanging out in front of a store like this. anyone care for a coke and ice?... Great shadows too.

Nice, loose painting - invites the viewer to look for a while! :clap:

A very ambitious subject, but quite a satisfying result. I might try this, but not in two hours. You got all the essentials there.

Very brave pic to tackle and great result. I really like all the busy-ness contrasted with the laid-back relaxed figure on the chair - cooool :)

Nice job. Watercolor mystifies me, requires too much planning for my scattered brain.

Very good job! :clap: YOu must be very brave to tackle such a busy photo in such a short time. And in watercolor too. Bravo.

You get the award for choosing the most challenging ref pic. And a second award for doing such a good job.
