Needless to say, I was not happy with my painting at all. I even have a picture of me starting to pout because I was not happy with my painting.
|I mean really look at those sad eyes!|
Now, I know when it is my own painting I can be a bit critical. I have always said (well, since I have attended Swirlz Art) that my painting looks so much better when I get it home and away from everyone else's. This painting did not look any better to me when I got it home. The more I looked at it, the more I thought it looked like a 5 year old painted it. As a matter of, my sister has been asking me for one of my paintings and I told her she could have this one...she asked me if she was suppose to tell everyone that my 5 year old nephew painted it.
I only had three options. One, hide it in a closet where no one could see it. Two, throw it away and feel like I wasted the money and time it took me to paint it. Three, buy some paint and brushes and fix it as much as I could. As much as the first two seemed to be a much easier and less time consuming option. I decided to go with the third option on this. After purchasing some paint and brushes from amazon. (you can check out what I purchased from my amazon shop here) So, I looked at my painting to really critic it and figure out what I needed to work on. And what I needed to leave alone...if anything. After a quick assessment, I decided I needed to darken up the majority of the painting. I liked the color of the milky way, but the rest of the sky's color was too close of a color to it. Plus, my husband told me my mountain looked like a big mountain of fire heading for my village. I had to make a joke about it after that by telling him that the ugly village needed to be burned down! So, yes I needed to fix my village too. So, after three more hours of painting this is what I ended up with.
