    Since I was on break for the last several weeks, I lived back in my old room at my parents house.
    There's a white wall - well, there was a white wall...

    Here's what happens when too much Bobby Long meets too much Bon Iver meets too much time meets too much space meets me.

    [​IMG]

    It's acrylic on ingrain wallpaper
    (Ingrain (or wood-chip) wallpaper is a decorating material. It consists of two layers of paper with wood fibre in between)

    the wallpaper was really annoying, you can't draw one straight line on that stuff, because it's so grainy -.-

    Anyways. I painted it because I was bored and I wanted to paint something and didn't wanna buy a canvas.
    Plus, I had no idea what I was gonna do until I was completely done. That's why that big fat ugly tree is there. I don't know where he came from, but it turns out that Bob Ross' trick only works with small trees. Or you need a bigger brush. ^^
    So that's what I spent my time with. Hooray :p

    That is amazing! Especially the clouds!

    What would be (sort of) funny is if your parent wanted the wall kept white and you had to paint over it.

    thanks Druid :)

    Yeah, that would be HI-LA-RIOUS - not. It would take about 15-20 layers of paint to get rid of that stuff again.
    If they wanted to keep it white, well... too bad :p

    I think that's as clean as it gets. Music starts at 0:35. For a recorded version, you'd have to buy it :D (most of his songs aren't recorded, but that's just because he writes at least 2 songs a week. He's crazy like that ;))

    oh yes he does :D You should go see him live some time, tickets are really affordable. (He sounds better live than on those crappy youtube videos. Plus he's cute and funny and... well... his voice... RAWR XD)

    the picture was about a week and a half. The thing was: I could only paint when the sun was shining, so that I had enough light, so it took quite a while ^^
    The writing was another week -.- :D

    That's really cool, Running! :V I have a friend who has all the walls (and even some furniture) in her room covered with her paintings and every once in a while she grows bored with one of them and paints something new over it ; P

    If I ever tried I'd have half the wall painted in a black-and white landscape and would never manage to finish or one half would be good, the other rubbish)

    weak lights, yeah... I painted at dusk once, woke up the other morning and had to redo it. -.-'

    thanks =)
    Your friend is really cool and rather creative! I couldn't imagine doing all the walls - because my nightmare is, that I grow sick of it and have to paint over it and stuff...

    same here. I mean, half of the painting already sucks, now imagine if I would have painted the whole room?! I could never return again ^^

    Many of my A4 drawings are only half-finished/half-good. Now imagine a wall! I have two in my room (the rest is [sloping] ceiling), but they're very long. I'd never finish it.
