I enjoyed doing this so much, I ordered another one as soon as I finished. The colors are beautiful and I spent hours relaxing and painting. I like layering the paint on thick, and I ran out of #2 paint but I was able to replace it with the other blues. It isn’t an exact match of the original painting and some of the colors are slightly off (the branches are more green in this) but it still came out looking great! I would even consider doing this one again and give it away as a gift. Recommend!
I spent many days tinkering with this painting and painted up through color #10. Once I got nearly all of the blue background painted, along with the complementary blues in the background, I realized that the colors in this painting wouldn't look at all like the original. Not only that, the colors I am using don't look good next to each other on the painting. If I spent the remaining time on this to paint the whole painting, I would not be satisfied with the end result and would NEVER want to display it. Very disappointing. Also, many of the numbers and lines show through the paint (and I was making it thicker there too). Just not anything I would ever frame or display. I took a great deal of time and detail to paint this up through paint color #10 and am really upset that I wasted that time. Also, I purchased 3 other paintings and I don't even want to try them because they are probably the same - the colors won't look like the picture, the number will show through the paint, and the colors I end up with won't even complement each other or look like they were meant to go together.
