Hydrangea Painting .........
Hi everyone! So happy you stopped by.
My grand daughter and I have been so
busy this summer that I forget to
share our projects with you.........
I always keep $store canvas on hand in my studio
just in case the urge to paint arises.
You know how much I love Hydrangeas......
So the inspiration for these paintings
came from my love of Hyrangeas.
Miss A. first painted this beautiful vase
and filled it with hydrangeas.
Then we decided to take it one step further
and copy the flower from my urn.
First we painted a background of many colours
then started with a dark blue paint and
with brush strokes in a circular motion
started painting the flower...........
adding white, pink, soft purple to the petals...
with love you could see before our
eyes the flower taking shape.
Then with the end of our paint brushes we
dabbed some yellow mixed with green to the centre of the
Next came the stem, then the leaves ........
I added a few extra flowers to mine......
Have fun with your paintings.......
Did I ever mention to you that all my painting supplies are from the $store.
You don't have to spend a fortune
on paint and brushes to show your creativity.
Try your hand at painting .....
Leave a comment so that I know you stopped by!
Love hearing from you.
*****did I mention Miss A. has a birthday
this month and she will be turning 11 yrs*****
