I transferred the
I painted this piece in
which I will show you as we go along!
Each section was basecoated then details added later to each section
Starting with the TOP section
I added some shading and highlights to the bowl
Kim adds LOTS of details to her designs
Her directions are VERY detailed and usually many pages!
I use the
possible when shading to get the best float
3/4" - 1" FLAT
It is also important to buy the best quality brushes you can afford for the BEST results!
Take it SLOW
one step at a time
you will see the results
which are always stunning
I'm starting to paint
orange pumpkin in the bowl
The shading needs to be built up gradually to create good value change and form
I'm adding some shading and highlights to the orange pumpkin
I am now working on the white pumpkin in the bowl
I am now working on the harvest banner
Close up of my work so far!
Now lets start to paint the crock
A lot of the shading in this project is done by layering your values to achieve form
I started the crock by randomly scumbling in values to achieve a rusty look
I later did a wash over the painted areas of the crock.
I kept the wash transparent so as to bring out all the tints I had previously created
Now to add shading and details to the crock
I am now starting to add details to the sheep
The texture of the sheep
was achieved by by taking the tip of my stylus
swirling it thru the white paint before it dried
I am working on the wheels and base of sheep pull toy
I painted the string and ball on pull toy
