Now I totally believed in the calming and healing qualities of painting. Such a relaxing time. I loved the experience so much that I ordered a couple more!!
Very gratifying activity.
I have always loved Van Gogh’s paintings and I was excited to get this one to paint. The painting was challenging and fun, but the colors shown in the finished picture on your website were not the same as the colors in the picture that I did. My painting was much darker and did not show the details in the painting, such as the people strolling.
I really enjoyed this very challenging piece. At times I became impatient but once I saw the end in sight I knew it was going to be special! It's now hanging above my fireplace mantle!
Painting a likeness of a masterpiece opens up so much about the original painter's thought process, their focus, their goals and their ideas about color and how much it can do. I learned a ton by painting this Van Gogh piece so far (I'm almost finished!), and I can already tell it's going to make a lovely addition to my decor when it's complete!
Not only have I loved working on this piece, but interacting with MPBN's customer service was an absolute TREAT. Walter was kind, enthusiastic, and infectiously upbeat. This experience has been all smiles from the jump! I'll definitely order again.
