For some reason the flies loved this painting. I was working with another artist near by and her painting wasn’t attractive to them! Look at my palette pic to see how many were in there. First I tried to save them by the end they were being mixed and and applied to my painting! I must have had over 30 flies stuck to my painting but thankfully most of them have now fallen off 🙂

I repainted the mud/water area back in the hotel as I hadn’t taken command of the paint and it looked unsure. I did it again with a bigger brush and it looks better – it helps to really attack it.
