Folk Art Acrylic Paint
The first step is to paint your canvas. My canvas was prepainted, so I didn’t bother painting the background.
I used both green paints to add a bit of definition to the leaves.
If it helps, you can think of the flower as a little man. He has a head, two arms, and two legs.
Overlap the flowers and let the colors mix to add dimension!
Once all the flowers have been added, you decide if you’d like to paint their centers.
I skipped dotting the centers, because I like how my flowers look with out the dots!
I have a real problem with symmetry and couldn’t handle three leaves on one side and only two on the other!!
Once your bouquet is symmetrical (or not!!), the painting is complete!!
I really wanted to add a bow around the stems but mine were too far apart!! I will try and add one next time though!!
