Romantic Roses

SD1216 Step 26

Stan asked me to put a vase of Roses on the bistro table especially for Lonnie. Isn’t that romantic? I begin blocking in the pink blossoms with several shades of Permanent Rose + White.

Palm Fronds add a different texture to the happy bouquet. I start to delineate the details of the flowers with a small Bright brush. Want to know more about the brushes I use? Just CLICK HERE!

Breathe in deeply. Can’t you just smell the wonderful fragrance of the freshly picked Roses? To see the picture enlarged just click on the image.

VIDEO! Starting to paint the Italian Tile floor. First I cover the surface entirely, establishing the dappled light and shadow pattern.

VIDEO! The perspective lines are drawn into the wet paint of the floor with a fine liner brush dipped in a mix of MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) + Liquin. This is done freehand, using a mahl stick would limit the movement of my hand making it difficult to pull a straight line. Then the horizontal lines separating the tiles are made.

That’s all folks! Thank you for all of your kind comments and questions. You don’t know how much I appreciate them. Hope you’ll come back soon. We’ll be working on the fruit basket, table and wicker chairs in the next session. BIG HUGS,
