Last time I shared with you how to paint the roses on the sign…
it has a video also.
Now I demo the lilacs.
I use a scruffy brush and start with pouncing on a conical shape in a darker color,
in this case Dioxazine Purple. (no longer available, use another dark purple)
A pattern packet for purchase is available here, Roses and Lilacs Garden sign
As you can see, it is very dark.
Next you take your filbert brush or a small flat brush,
load with paint (you can double load or single, up to you)
Add the dots with a liner brush for the flower centers, and some little twiggy strokes.
You can get a better feel for it from the video.
It is actually two videos made into one.
The first one I painted with a filbert brush and the second was with a #4 flat brush.
Ignore the banner across the bottom,
this is the thumbnail for the rose painting tutorial.
