I like this portion of the painting better than the whole piece so far. I still need to go in and touch up and lighten and darken, but I am fairly happy with it so far. I got a video tutorial and followed it and did this much in 1 hour, so that part made me happy! This canvas is 16" square.
It's all a learning process and I need to spend more time painting and practicing techniques and just playing around. When it is finished, I will put a clear glossy over it so it will shine! It is much more colorful than it shows. I took this pic at night with just the kitchen light on so it's kind of blah.
