On the Easel - Mad Hatter's Wonderland Tea Party with Crayons - Daily Acrylic Trompe L'Oeil Painting

"Wonderland Tea Party," acrylic on panel, 8" x 8".

I thought I'd share another side by side comparison of my painting and my still life subject. This is the most complex of the Wonderland pieces I've done, and the largest. It was also my first attempt working on Aquabord, using an acrylic watercolor-style technique, and I'm really pleased with how the surface and the acrylic behaved in just the way I prefer, and enabled much richer, deeper and brighter colors. I'll post for sale soon. Thanks for looking!
