I'm an acrylic painter and find it interesting that many who post oils do reproductions of masters (many quite well) while the acrylic postings are mostly original. I've done acrylic copies of Cezanne oils for my brother. Just an observation.

I love the original and this looks to be a very accurate copy. Well done!

This painting is an excellent one to study and you've painted this quite well. My suggestion would be to tone down the red doors as they are barely noticeable in the original and as they are the most deeply pigmented in your painting. Kudos to you on taking on this very complicated piece.

Taschick, I've wondered whether it would do justice to an oil painting to recreate in acrylics. I may just attempt it myself, not as well as this however.

Beautifully done...I wonder if the colors would be this vivid, had the original not aged. I rather like the boldness.
