Val is recovering from Internet problems so I'm helping her out.

Please try and stick to the photograph for your painting so everyone is on an equal footing.

Feel free to use the subject photos in your own creation BUT place it in the Encourager section, NOT in the challenge. Thank you for your ongoing support of these challenges.

Any single paint medium may be used including; watercolour, acrylic, oil, watercolour pencil, brush, inktense or pastel. If it is not specifically listed, DON'T USE IT! If you are unsure, PM me directly.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time do not combine w/c with w/c pencil, or gouache. There will be changes forthcoming allowing the more advanced painter to combine these mediums under w/c. Thanks for your patience.

When posting your entry, please list type of paint (w/c, oil, acrylic, w/c pencil, inktense) used. Appreciated as it may help someone with less experience. 

Thanks, Brian

I was home today and needed something to do.  We had extreme heat today so staying inside was a good thing.  I attempted the challenge.  I only had 140 lb hot pressed paper on hand.  I do not like painting on this paper. It behaves differently with the watercolor.  :(  But here is the end result:
