Painting # 34 and one I've wanted to try painting for a very long time, pretty much ever since I first picked up a brush last year. I almost just went with an oval but decided to try the full pattern with the contact paper. I was actually surprised that I didn't mess it up too badly. There's some bleed here and there but I worked really hard at keeping the paint contained. I guess I've also learned to work with the terrible contact paper, making sure to paint inwards always. A few mistakes here and there, but we don't make mistakes - only happy accidents. This took me 2 hours total as it was more challenging today. 18x24 on a canvas I primed once. I think priming one time with good quality gesso is right where I want that tooth level to be. There appears to be a blur/smudge in this image.
