Painting Process Reversed

Usually i paint something on a canvas, and then make a print of it. This time, I was asked to make a digital print into a painting as a custom order. It was something I had never tried before, but it was quite enjoyable. Most of the digital artwork I do are simple shapes, and it was challenging to paint these shapes to look clean and crisp on a canvas with paint. When I listed this one as a custom order, someone else surprisingly requested the same painting. The only difference is they wanted three birds, rather than the bird and two trees combo. I am still working on both of these, but I thought I would show you my progress so far. I have been thinking about which other digital print in my shop would make a great painting. I would love to hear your thoughts on which one I should attempt next.

very cute! the painting looks great! Usually phen I paint from a photo or digital art I have to grid out the canvas to make sure it looks absolutely PERFECT! :)

I think you should do Mia Meadows Returns as an original canvas. I might have to buy it if you do. :)
