And this was the photo we took ourselves to use as a subject:

For me it turned out to be a sort of nightmare, especially painting wet on wet trying desperately not to bleed one colour into another. It must have been a good day,although frustrating after a fashion it sort of worked.I decided to leave well enough alone, I think Carol must have red ears with a few of my under the breathe comments, she certainly pushes the untrained eye of untrained wanna be's. I find each Challenge an horrendous feat of patience,frustration and determination and think I will give up,but, the next one pops up and off I go again grumbling usually and can't get to the canvas quick enough, saying O.K I'll have one more go!

And Jo got lots of comments full of Praise!
The challenge for me was painting with a limited palette, no earth colours, plus I challenged myself to paint with a 1/2 inch wide brush and thick paint. Plus for some reason when I paint on these small panels I have to rush, I actually did it twice in the time the others did one, but each of mine looked the same in the end, I don't know which looked the most attractive the painting (no) or the mess on my face and hands (yes).
