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!

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

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
