I've been working on spring and summer ideas. The Oopsy Daisy stencil from DecoArt was so fun to use to create this spring canvas!
The stencil is 12x12 and therefore works great on a 12x12 canvas!
I used DecoArt Americana paint.
I gesso'd the canvas first. Then painted a solid coat of Bright Yellow. Then I laid the stencil on, painted the flower and leave section in warm white. That helps cover the yellow before you paint them in with the colors you want to use.
I first painted a base coat of Pink and Lilac.
I used Royal Fushia, Wild Orchid, and Plum for the flowers to shade and add depth.
Sour Apple was the color I used on the leaves.
Once done, I doodled with a white and black Posca pen. Then I splattered "dots" around with watered down warm white and black paint.
The final result is very eye catching! Fun!

The Southern VA Child Advocacy Center provides services for child victims and their non-offending family members as well as educational prevention initiatives for the entire community.
I was honored to hold a fundraiser for them this month. We started the day at 10AM painting The Grinch. Such a fun and light hearted painting.
