In case you don’t already know, we love painting Dorothy Dent designs at Artful Endeavors. This week we’ll start a new design, the Brook, which I just love. I enjoyed painting my sample and am looking forward to sharing this beautiful painting with my students.
I thought you might like to see my painting as I progressed. Dorothy paints in oils but I use acrylics for our classes. Although I’ve enjoyed oils in the past, I have discovered that I’m allergic to some of the products. And, there is very little we can’t paint in acrylics since they are so versatile. I use the wonderful DecoArt Traditions and of course Americana, my first acrylic love.
Here’s the beginning of the sky and water area. This is about 3 layers of adjusting. DecoArt’s new Americana color Blue Haven is a wonderful color, medium light value, not too greyed, a happy blue.
I love the colors in this painting. Such a pleasing combination.
