Labor Day Art

Today I went down to the local art supply store and bought a new canvas, some new paints, and a brush, and created some crazy new artwork for our living room.

This painting is copied somewhat closely from the 19th century print by Hiroshige, called “Navaro Rapids.”  His wasn’t a painting, but I figured I could paint it.

Here’s my version.

And, here’s the original.

Not exact, but pretty decent I think!  My attention span for doing a painting like this is a few hours tops, so I had to work fast.

  1. The actual artwork didn’t show up here, but we found it on art.com. You did amazingly well…I thought it looked a bit cartoonish, but when I saw the original it looks just the same. Try your hand (or brush) at some abstract modern art…you could sell it and be rich.
