Oil on board canvas
Size 41 x 33 cm / 16.1 x 13 inches

Yay! Finally got this oil painting done. In working time it took only about 20h, but that was scattered across whole six months or so due to my laziness. The act of oil painting is hell of a lot of fun but starting or ending a session is such pain I couldn't really get my lazy ass moving..

I'm pretty happy with it for now, considering it's one of the first oil paintings I've ever done.. Fourth to be exact. It's incredible how well different mediums transition to one another. I had a huge dose of Bob Ross to get environment oil painting rolling for me though.

One thing I regret is that I didn't choose a larger canvas, I was way more intimidated by it than I should've been. Other is that I took way too long doing this, and now as I've improved I realize a lot of mistakes I can't fix anymore at this point (with my current skill level, at least) without spending another pile of hours on it.

Took hell of a long while to get a good photo out of this.. The lighting and color balance are still pretty off. Some of the paint was also still a bit wet, so I'll likely try to take another picture later.

I always thought it had a striking resemblance to The Shire from The Lord of the Rings

Tää oli tosi siisti ihan livenäki CF:ssä! Oon kateellinen siitä että jaksat maalaa öljyväreillä, ite maalaan akryyleillä koska öljyllä kestää ikuisuus kuivua :D

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you. 9 donw
