VIDEO DEMONSTRATION: Painting the Baby Rabbit

The Pink Geraniums are painted FLOWERS FIRST (1) and LEAVES LAST (2). The blossoms are Permanent Rose + White, while the leaves are mixes of Pthalo Blue + Lemon Yellow. Please keep in mind, you may click on any of the images to see enlargements.

Sunflowers are blocked in following the same sequence. After the foliage is painted the large, dark centers in the blooms are added with a mix of MUD (2 parts Ultramarine Blue + 1 part Alizarin Crimson) + Liquin.

The finishing touch on the Geraniums is to add the buds that cluster at the base of the individual flowers.

Jennifer’s family lived in many different places as she was growing up, Texas is one of her favorites.

The Minnesota Flag is in honor of one of my collector’s dear friends, Marty, who Our Lord took Home to Heaven recently.

Jennifer also spent time in Venezuela and the United Kingdom as a young girl.

Brazil and Egypt were home at various times too!

“PLACES IN THE HEART”   Original Oil Painting

All of the people symbolized in this painting and the locations indicated by the flags hold special “PLACES IN THE HEART” of my collectors. I pray that every time they look at this piece on their wall, their souls will be filled with many happy memories of their loved ones and the wonderful times they shared. Thanks for following along on this painting, I do hope you’ll come back and visit my studio again soon. With Big Hugs,
