Finding this one a challenge

I'm find this painting quite a challenge to transfer what is in my mind on to the canvas. The woman, (obviously part of the Royal Court) is, of course, taking the Royal monkeys for a walk in the Indian country side and will no doubt have tea (dejarling do doubt) with the Raj. Hmmm.....

We will see what happens tomorrow.

Thanks so much for dropping in and for all your wonderful comments.  It boosts my spirits no end and means a lot to me.

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.”
