I painted this hammer under Stan's tutelage (see previous post). I had to chose a subject at my skill level, take a photo of it with an eye to composition (even for such a simple object), do it all with a 1 inch brush and black paint. I can see the difference between this (I like) and the Cottage (couldn't do it justice). So check out Stan's website. He's phenomenal. It's stanmiller.net -no dub-dub's. Totally worth it.
