    I WANT TO TRY THIS! I like the old cowboy paint by numbers.

  2. Glorious effect. Side tables are fantastic. And the shameless showing off of shoulders… even better 😉

    Gorgeous–thanks for sharing how you did it, Orlando! Any ideas about where I might find an opaque projector? Thank you!

    That’s really beautiful! Could you upload a photo of the original painting too? I’d love to see what you used as a source for that great piece of art.

    I’ve got to paint the Space Needle in house somewhere. Also, I strongly believe the US National Parks should offer a series of paint-by-numbers.

    Hi Orlando, I really love your painting. I have been looking for something similar for a really long time. And I want to paint one for my living room. Do you mind sharing the original picture to help my project? Thanks!
