I’ve become very interested in painting in the last few weeks, so I’ve decided to share one of my projects with you!
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brushes (a large and medium flat brush, small filbert (not pictured), and two small detail brushes)
- Raspberry Ice
- Poodle Skirt
- Blue Sky
- Green Curry
I used Blue Sky and my large, flat paintbrush to paint my canvas. I believe I gave mine two coats, but the more coats the better!!
Start by double loading the small, flat brush with Raspberry Ice and Poodle Skirt. Then, using mostly the tip of your brush, slowly wiggle up and down while moving in an arc. This should create the shell shape above.
If you’re not satisfied with the way your flower looks, just keep playing around with the paint until you achieve something you like. That’s what I did. I kept adding paint here and there until I was satisfied.
Using a filbert brush, paint five little petals in a circle. These are just like the flowers I used in my hydrangea tutorial.
These flowers are really easy once you get the hang of it!
I dipped the end of my brush in paint to create the center of each little five-petal flower.
Once the majority of the flowers are painted, it’s time to add the stems.
I used the smallest detail brush and Scallion for the five-petal flowers and the larger detail brush and Green Curry for the larger flowers.
I also decided to extend the stems to the edge of the canvas.
Add leaves wherever you think they should go!
