I just started painting this week for the new book, Give Thanks! I am having so much fun combining my traditional style and some of the great new techniques I've been learning and I thought you might like to see the process of a painting coming together. I've never thought to photograph steps along the way so it was fun for me too. I paint rather willly nilly so you'll have to look at each one to see where I skipped to next!
This is one of three paintings I did this week and I'm thrilled to see how God continues, not only in transforming my life, but transforming my art as well!! I'd love to hear what you think about the new style if you have a moment!
My very first acrylic painting for a book... but using Golden Fluids is similar to watercolors but better!
Choosing colors... especially with a new medium... can be challenging!
I love the depth you can get with these paints! SWEET!
A little close up.
Oh... the pattern along the side ads some whimsy.
Adding a few more acorns.
Okay... it's almost finished!
Tadah! (spelling?) Thank You Lord... and now only 77 pages yet to do!!
Blessings to you for a great week... I'm off to the coast to work on the writing part of the book and I'll try to post while I'm there but no promises.
