How about when Zach did this?
Well, I've finally got down to doing this:
The fourth panel of my Faux Gogh chair is the one I've dreaded the most. When you take a real close look at Vincent Van Gogh's Irises, you can begin to understand what I mean. Every single one of his irises is unique. He obviously studied the flowers' shapes and movements when he interpreted them with twisting, curling strokes. The tangled web of irises, leaves and stems are enough to drive anyone mad.
So far, I've painted the yellow background and some of the long stems. Knowing when to quit (let the painting be for a while) is really important, and so that is why I have left it for now until I can complete the panel and be happy with what I've done.
Once I have completed the fourth panel, I will start on the finishing touches. For one thing, I need to paint the underside of the seat cushion; then there are a few details on the two side panels that need to be done and then it'll be completed. Finished. Done.
Then ... I'll be on the hunt for another chair to start the agony and torture all over again. I love this!
