The frost had to of broke because in less than 12hrs all the standing water at the railroad & field across the road is gone. I am not kidding it was looking like a giant lake. My son is going to be totally disappointed as he packed play pants and rubber boots to ride his bike in all the water.
That would be it. Take a bit of white/gray line down edge then drag over & then do the same on the other side so get the wrap effect. The instructor showed how to do it on the bottom half of the tree with the initials. That's why it looks better then the others I did. The strokes look like basket weave.
The more of these parties I do the better I get at it. Still think it would be fun to take a painting class but then I am afraid it will take the fun away.
The paint didn't blend the way I wanted in front of the barn & ran out of time to be able to blend it to a more brown. Wan't it to look like worn ground infront of the barn, really doesn't look that bad.
Heidi, the paintings go to my son, everyone one done have his initials somewhere. The last one I put them in the tree branches but thought it would be fun to make it look like it was carved in the tree.
Pink, yes they are still going to Shortman. Told him he can store them in his closet & will put a nail up so he can rotate them in his room. The latest ones I do hang in the kitchen. Last month did a winter sunrise painting. The reflection of sun off the snow didn't turnout the way I wanted color wise. But with the lights turned off in the kitchen the painting looked like it glowed & was really cool looking.
There paint parties are a lot of fun. Last nights group was really small so the gal had more time to help show us some techniques with the brush to get the effect we wanted.
