This was an experiment in many aspects. I wanted to paint some more with acrylic, to paint on a slightly different surface (this is on a piece of cardboard from some kind of packaging), to try to paint realism from a photo, and I wanted to try painting with a large brush with quick strokes.
I actually timed myself for this one. It took 3 hours in total and was really fun to do!
