The Twenty-Five Minute Challenge

Once again...  Thanks Susan!

Susan posted a YouTube of herself painting a painting in 25 minutes:

And here is my painted version of the same image she used:
This one actually took me about 45 minutes. It is loosely painted compared to most of my paintings. I have her to Thank for this. I should be cranking out an image a day. Hence the name of this blog? Go figure!

The image is to dark. The finished result is still very immature, but its progress. I may turn off canvas settings when I paint pastel images in ArtRage. It seems to darken the image and there isn't much benefit of having the paper grain showing. The pastel just covers up the grain. Oil does not do this. Interesting.
