I finished the painting. I think I'm much better at pen and paper, or I prefer the outcomes to paint, but I am still very happy with the result. :)
I'm planning on making 4 paintings, each for a different part of this quote: "Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth." - Mark Twain.
Here are my sketches and the first painting. :)
