Hardly every have I picked up a paint brush in my life. Having barely worked with acrylic this was a completely new experience for me, and kinda scary seeing we had to jump straight in without an overload of instruction.
Here’s the paint and here’s what your copying, with a few tips on top (no pun intended). Here is how my painting turned out…
On the left is the acrylic base painted in blue. The middle is my finished oil painting and on the right is the reference image by Wayne Thiebaud. All considered I think my painting worked out somewhat. Sure its not perfect in any way shape or form but you only get better with time and effort. I guess you never know till you give it a go.
