My second post today. More free hand paining...yikes. Well there is one thing that I feel almost comfortable painting free hand and one thing only. A sunflower. I have one on my craft room wall that I painted with acrylic paints years ago. Again this took a while just to paint, much less dry, mat and add a sentiment; but, it was a peaceful afternoon well spent listening to some soft rock and the light rain outside.
I had the sentiment in mind when I sat down to paint, it is from Simon Says Stamp Color and Sunshine stamp set. So while normally I would have the "white space" above the flower...in a play on the sentiment, I inverted the image panel. Simon Says Stamp Sunshine card stock is the perfect card base for this piece as well.
I so loved this class, I know part of it is the medium of the water colors. However, I have to say the class materials - Video (every single class day) were spectacular. So much talent in the group of instructors and guest designers. This class is so worth taking. The galleries and forums remain open to additions until May 22th.
Thanks for stopping by.
