Gauguin/Alcala; my copy of a Gauguin

I did this copy in my high school painting class years ago. This was done with Tempera paints. Tell me what you think?
I like the left side, but the right side is just horrific! hehe

(NOTE: The attached image is my painting, while the embedded image is the actual Gauguin. So you should see the actual Gauguin before you see mine.)

ummm. i don't really have more to say.

I think it's cool. Paint can often be a difficult medium.

hey that's not bad at all! I like the warm colors you chose for your reproduction..did you chose them purposely?

how many years have you been painting?

I haven't painted since high school, truthfully. I had two semesters of paint class; that's about it.

P.S. As for the warm colors, I was just trying to make it as close as possible to the Gauguin. As you can see, I'm not an expert at mixing colors.

Really? You've definitely got some potential so you should take up painting again IMO

Well thank you, Nancy! My dad keeps bugging me about taking up painting again, but truth be told, our apartment is super-small and I don't have much space for anything like paintings and painting supplies. There's not even room to draft an essay, much less paint. I have lots of "when I get out of the apartment" dreams like painting, setting up my drum set, and hooking up with girls who don't have a place to 'hang out' of their own (I learned long ago not to bring any of my friends, much less my girlfriends, near my dad; but that's a completely different story).

Good to hear that someone urges you to take it up again! I see the problem with your small apartment but can't you just... I dunno put the pictures below your bed or something?

Another "when I leave the apartment" dream, as my "bed" is the couch.
