I’ve been wanting to challenge myself with something totally different and out of my comfort zone. It’s changed a little bit from the original but I’ve decided not to fiddle with it anymore to avoid the risk of overworking it or ruining it completely. I’m quite happy with the end result :)

A huge thankyou to BK Photography for allowing me to paint his amazing photo :)
