This is definitely the hardest thing I have ever painted and it's all in tiny brush, which is why its taking longer to do. What's difficult are the colours foremost, and then the shading as I have a lot in shadow for this piece. Then there's the texture of the leaves, which is still proving to be difficult to capture, but I am enjoying the challenge - really I am. If I wasn't, I wouldn't be in the studio first thing (that's usually a sign).

I have five days to complete Lucy before I take her to England, can I do it? Hopefully!
