Today was the big festival here in town and I participated in the painting competition. The rules were to start with a blank canvas between 10 and 11am and submit a finished work at 2pm. At 5pm they gave out some prizes and in a few weeks all the pieces will be auctioned. It was definitely a challenge but I got it done. What with the driving and all I painted from start to finish in 2 hours and 15 minutes. Here are the images as the work progressed.
The thing I like the least is the head. It seems out of proportion after all. I tried to fix it but time was running out so that is that. I love her legs. And I love the water. I am also pretty happy about the bathing suit. I think overall I am very satisfied. Also I got an award - Best Acrylic.
