While I am trying to use my own photography to base my paintings on, I couldn’t resist my favorite photo of Piet’s father Kees in The Netherlands. I will admit I struggled with this one, and had to re-do multiple sections after the cat walked on it with wet feet. And my color mixing skills leave something to be desired (I plan on buying new paints in the colors I want next time) but I think it still it turned out well enough to put in a cheap Ikea frame for the living room wall 😛 Which by the way, its the main reason for my painting adventures. I really wanted new art work and we can’t afford to buy it from real artists!
Here is the original photo the painting was based on. Such a handsome guy!
