Summer

Good morning all.
I chose to paint a bright and cheery painting to remind us of sunny days.

I painted this one in 15 minute segments too, which I've posted underneath the finished painting. I hope you enjoy seeing them.
If you add up all the time stages, you'll see this simple painting was completed in an hour and a half. The 15 minutes a day can add up to something nice, as I hope you'll agree :) 

The painting :  Summer
11x8, Saunders Waterford 140lb rough
