Day 162(1 day late): Boat Painting Day 1

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

For whatever reason, this week has turned into paint by number week! Continuing with that theme today, I decided to go to Hobby Lobby and get a paint by number to actually paint. I ended up choosing a scene with the ship Queen Anne, because honestly it was the least cheesy looking one! So, I started working on it at home and quickly realized it was going to take a lot longer than I thought. I worked on this for about 3 hours and only got through all the basic colors, not the mixed ones. So! This is going to span over a couple of days of posts… But, here’s what I’ve got so far.

So, it looks completely different than the image on the box… Obviously after I get all of the base colors I’m going to have to go back in and do some serious blending, which is sort of hard with the crappy brush and paints they give you, but I’ll make it work! If I just leave it with the shapes just filled in, I think it will look really strange and cartoonish, so we’ll see how it goes!

Now to bed and I’ll keep working on this tomorrow!
