    now thats art! :thumbup1:

    2 weeks, is that for the love of it?, i've got to ask as i'm thinking maybe a commission to paint someones capri may be cost prohibitive?.

    but your the man to explain these things.

    Thankyou you guys! [​IMG]

    Its on a 3x4ft canvas, so might be a bit overwhelming on your living room wall! two weeks from building the frame/stretching the canvas to finished painting, about 30ish hours in total, and I only used a homebase decorating brush and one smaller brush [​IMG]


    and this is my final (3rd) year as an fine art/music undergrad 2.8iman [​IMG]
