My Painting Experience

Last night I went with my friend Erica to Painting With A Twist in west Fort Worth. You go for 2 hours and follow the instructor's instructions and come away with a painting. The great thing about it is that it doesn't have to be perfect. As you can see below in the group photo, the painting are all different, yet all look great.

Here is the progression in my painting....

First the background. We started at the top and made our way down.
I did get a green streak in the middle of the sky, but the flowers covered it up.


Then the darker flowers

After the dark flowers, we added white ones and light yellow ones.
Then we added stem and some detailing on the flowers.

My sweet friend, Erica.

I have to say that I really love doing this. It is a fun time with friends. It teaches me some painting techniques and how to layer. And I come away with some art I can hang! This is definitely going in my bedroom, as it goes well with my springy color palette.

  1. The paintings came out great. Did you use acrylics? It must have been so much fun. Just checked the link, nearest to me is in PA )-: You'll have to go again so I can live vicariously!
