What are you most proud of? That it is an accurate representation of the photo I used. And that I created it myself from my own photo and imagination. I really love how this turned out and I am proud of myself for the accomplishment.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? To break down the image into shapes and values (I used the photocopy feature of Photoshop Elements to begin this process). And to keep it very simple. As a beginner these two things were key for me. Also, I learned a lot studying the photo. The more I looked at it, the more I saw the patterns of color and value emerge. That really helped me paint accurately.
