It's technically an actionable breach of copyright, the fact that you've used 
paint instead of reprography isn't likely to deflect a court. However, unless 
you sell it or publish it (oh damn, you just did), you are not going to get 
bothered for it. Damages would usually be limited to the amount of money you 
made from it, which if $0, is unlikely to encourage anyone to sue you.

Warhol's Campbell soup series were in the same predicament.
