This was my first attempt. I found it challenging for a beginner and the matter of mixing paint came as a complete surprise. But I kept on painting, learning much as I went along and after six or seven weeks it was finished. And then I bought a nice frame and hung it on my wall--something I had not intended to do when I started. But it came out so nice and I just couldn't stop looking at it that I thought it deserved to hang on the wall.
