I started out to do fast and loose (This week's agreement for our little group was to do picture #3, no matter what it turned out to be, in this manner.) I love the photo, but it is a challenging reference to do in this manner. This shot is at the half-hour mark:
I was stumbling and had let the painting dry overnight, and then I started to add more color, definitely reducing my expectations of what I could do in 2 total hours (hence no bee). My now nearly 16 month old great-grandson arrived, and this next shot is what I had done in another half-hour:
I planned to spend my entire 2 hours, working for an hour after Bryson (the little one) went home, but I got unexpected company about 15-20 minutes into the hour. I just decided that since I have a work day tomorrow, I would post and be done with it. This is my final for here, although I think I would like to practice some negative painting in the background and maybe even add that bee later for myself:
