I've never really painted before (a few watercolors in high school-that's it) but always wanted to give it a go. So almost 2 years ago next month I was given a saw blade by a friend that he wanted me to paint. Thinking it wouldn't be that difficult, I bought some oil paints and started what I thought would be an easy project. Wrong! Turns out oils and I don't get along...at all. So the saw has sat for almost two years now and I'd only touched it once or twice.
Well a few weeks ago I started following the awesome works of Lilruffian (check out her threads if you haven't yet!) and thought I should maybe give it another try. But this time with acrylics. So I stripped the paint off and started again. And tada! I'm done.
So don't judge too harshly-first painting practically. I'm just glad it's finally done.
And due to the ridiculously large size of this thing and a not-so-great camera, the pics aren't that great. Sorry!
