This was three days work...not really all that long...maybe 6 hours...too long for this kind of work I suppose. Painter 7
This was done for a contest on the theme of summer.
As per request, a new version with rails reworked. I changed the coloring on the rails to match the floor, added a bit of a richer tone to give a late-day sunny look, modified a wierd spot on the dogs nose, roughed up the rails a bit, softened the shadows, etc.
