This painting is a nice challenge but it's not as difficult as it looks. Accuracy with your brush strokes and achieving correct perspective is very important. I use a straight edge throughout this painting to steady my hand and perfect the straight lines needed. There's a lot of instruction on creating texture in this lesson too! Don't let the complexity of this scene put you off, there's so much to learn for all levels of ability.
