This painting is the last painting I did for Painting with a Twist’s internal contest in back in 2014;

Untitled Acrylic Painting
Old painting for a Painting with a Twist internal contest

Out of the three that I turned in, this perhaps is the most complicated piece of all. It’s no Albert Bierstadt nor an Andrew Wyeth in status. It’s way too simplistic a painting to be considered a complex landscape, but it’s complicated enough for a beginner. Can a beginner attempt this painting? Yes, of course, they can… after all, Painting with a Twist is geared for the beginners. But this was honestly the piece I didn’t think would be accepted as a painting in the Painting with a Twist catalog simply because of the amount of work needed to finish the painting. I feel like I can’t break this down enough in a three-hour class that the customers can realistically follow. There’s simply too much information for me to teach in order for a beginner to make this painting. But then again, I never really attempted to teach it, so I wouldn’t really know if it is feasible.

This painting is honestly nothing to compare to what I do now digitally. I have done some landscapes that are truly complicated. But as for an acrylic painting, it’s fairly interesting enough.
