My very first painting ever. No experience whatsoever. My paints and tools are beginner quality, but with that being said I am surprised at how well it came out. I would have never guessed that I can paint anything other than a stick figure. One thing I could use some guidance on is applying the paint. Bob seems to layer the paint and only blend out the edges so his painting stays vibrant. I seemed to mix my color directly in with my liquid white basecoat all around. Any ideas on how to avoid this?
