Well, are you ready for a new fast and easy painting tutorial???
Complete with VIDEO!
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 Dioxinine 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)
and stroke on the petals.
Press, drag and lift to a point to make a simple little 4 or 5 petal flower.
Just keep layering them on leaving some darker space showing.
Some flowers can be a mere 2 or 3 strokes to emulate a partial bud.
Add in a lighter color and stroke over some of the first flowers.
Fill in with flowers all the way to the tip.
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.
I think next time I need to do a lesson on leaves.
What do you think?
I will share that as soon as possible..
