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.
