Below is my painting for comparison. I have to say, reading the story really helped me get into the right state of mind for painting, and this is probably the least contrived piece of work I've ever produced. I also have to say that our red is not nearly red enough, but we're running out of paints (I have more on order) so I had to make do with what we had. I probably should have called her "pretty pink" instead of "merry red"! By the way, this is wet-on-wet watercolor painting, in case anyone is wondering, which is what we do a vast majority of the time.
