A quick update ... One of the mails I received in the last challenge had a nice suggestion and I thought I would share it with you. The artist had suggested that each of us while submitting our painting could also perhaps write a sentence or two about how we did the painting. It would be a great learning experience for all of us to view and also read a bit about each other's painting process.
It's completely optional of course... however I have slightly modified (and added an extra field) in the submission form we use while sending our paintings for the challenge. Thank You!

About the composition
This was the highest price paid in £sterling, in US dollars it was the third most expensive painting at $76.7 million. This price has since been surpassed but it still remains the world auction record for any Old Master painting. Needless to say how glad and grateful I am to Mr. Thomson for donating it to the museum so that all of us can enjoy it.
I hope all will enjoy painting this challenge and be inspired to try your hands and assemble your own compositions in a similar way.
