2009-05-04 Starting a Painting Kit by Donna Dewberry


A couple years ago I bought a packaged kit that contained 2 canvases; a couple of brushes; paint pots of acrylic paint and a how to DVD on how to do one-stroke painting. Until my daughter wanted a canvas for her walls at her new house I never even opened it. Since I did one big painting for her I thought I would try a small pair that can be hung together.

What you see here are the two canvases that have been block painted with acrylic paints. To do this I used painters tape and masked off sections; waited for them to dry and then taped off more sections. I’m waiting for them to dry before I begin the scary part…painting flowers & leaves over the blocks of colors.
