k_e_park2354738 asked:
This is beautiful, such talent, How long did it take you to paint., What size is it
susanwalshharper answered:
Thank you! It's quite larger for a watercolor, about 25.5 x 30.5 inches. It was one of those paintings that seems to fight you from the very beginning. I had to restart it once and eventually it took over 6 weeks to complete. Usually, I can do a painting in a week or two, depending on size, difficulty and other interruptions.
