Painting For the Heart Class Project 1

Whimsical painting draws me in for reason. I don't know if it is just the messiness, the out of proportion at times, the broken rules, the freedom to do whatever, but I love it and I really want to learn how to do it.

So I joined an online class called Painting for the Heart by Juliette Crane. She is excellent. Her first class showed how to do a bunny. I'm not really into animals, but the techniques here really good.

I think one of my favorite things so far is the freedom to paint over whatever it is you don't like. Before, I lived with whatever I did, not wanting to "waste" all that work I had already done. But last night I painted over the whole bottom half of the bunny's face because it was just too dark.

Freedom to do whatever.

I love it and can't wait to try the next project this weekend.

Here's a few pictures from start to finish.

Adding painted paper and book pages to cardboard.

Painted white on the background.

This was the difficult part...had to keep changing and painting
 and covering up until I liked it. 

I love finger painting!

I squeezed a bottle of distress paint and the whole cap flew
 off....and splatted onto my hardwood floor! Yikes!
