Side by Side on the Easel - Monopoly Boardwalk Card Trompe L'Oeil Daily Painting

Left: Original card taped to a board.
Right: "I Own Boardwalk," acrylic on panel, 5" x 5". 

I thought I'd post another side by side comparison of one of my daily trompe l'oeil paintings and the original subject. I really enjoyed this one, a lot more than I thought I would with all of the tiny tiny letters. But I'm really enjoying working in acrylic now, as I think it's very conducive to my technique of glazing layers of paint on and letting them dry in between, which can take weeks in oil.

I'll be posting this piece to eBay soon. Enjoy!
