Here's a new image taken with my phone. My old point and shoot may need to be retired.
I'm finished with this painting. It's more vibrant than this image shows. It was a challenging painting, but it turned out as I had hoped. As for the painting process, I learned an important lesson; I have to have a clear color plan before I begin each day. If I don't, then I can't paint. I'd paint and wipe it off too many times. After a while I'd walk away. Other artists don't paint like me, I know; I guess there are as many different approaches as there are painters.
