Plum Pretty!

 

VIDEO DEMONSTRATION: Painting the Plum Colored Door

VIDEO DEMONSTRATION: Painting Indian Corn

Let’s turn our attention to the courtyard floor. The surface is covered with Terra Cotta mixtures made of MUD (2 parts Ultramarine Blue + 1 part Alizarin Crimson) + Cadmium Orange + White. A few strokes of Ultramarine Blue + White are made along the back; the coolness of the blue makes it recede. After the light and shadows are established I come back with a thin brush dipped in a combination of MUD + Liquin and pull the perspective lines into the wet paint.

Next, the horizontal lines are drawn and edges of the tiles highlighted.

The wall planter is made with some of the paint remaining from the floor. Then the mix of MUD + Liquin is used to form the wrought iron holder.

That door with the corn is just “Plum Pretty” isn’t it? I love the combination Jeana chose and will definitely have to use it in another painting. Jack always said, “Mikki, your collectors have the most wonderful ideas!” I totally agree! HUGS,Mikki Senkarik signature JPEG
