Tutorial Drawing /then painting



Here's the top of a pizza box from one of our local pizza places. 


I noticed he had a handdrawn sign in his window-Frank's Pizza.  He's been in business for years and years.  He deserves a better sign.


I started with a piece of Acrylic 185 pd paper by Canson.  I used Tradition paints. 
painted the whole paper with Raw Sienna.
So-to get the lines in perspective, I drew a grid on the pizza top.  Then I lightly sketched the basic portion on top of my basecoat.
Painted the rest with Naphtol Red Light and Hansa Yellow mixed, made beige with Raw Umber, white and raw sienna. The dark areas were black and black and white.

When I liked what I had, I used a water brush and a mixture of Tsukineko Walnut Ink Antiquing solution in walnut and cornflower colors.

To get the words, I then hand drew them with a Zig Artist Sketch pen.

I love how it turned  out.  I hope Frank does!  Have a great Friday!

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
