Hello Fellow Creative Ones! :-D
This is Teresa Cox Kolar of Sweet Mare Studio
and I am truly pleased and honored to
return to the RubberMoon blog as a guest artist.
My last post was in February. It is exciting to be back for a visit!
Today I will show you how to create the painting below
"Three Horses In A Corner."
"There Horses In A Corner"
1.Your Painting Surface
You will need a 12x12 inch artist panel, 3/4" deep
or any other size you might prefer.
This panel is made by Ampersand and is wonderful
to work on as it is a hard surface, perfect for stenciling.
I also enjoy the texture as it so closely resembles real canvas.
Cloth-like texture on a super sturdy surface-perfect!
2. Your Under Painting
For this step you will need the following acrylic paints and one brush:
Manganese Blue Hue
Naples Yellow Hue
Wide, flat, scrubby, inexpensive paint brush
The brands I use are Golden and Liquitex.
Other brands should work just fine too.
3. The Final Details
Various handmade stencils. I have drawn
and cut out my own stencils in the
shapes of a horse, bird, oval.
Feel free to create any designs that you prefer.
For my stencils I used a manila folder. For the smaller white circles
I used the RubberMoon Organic Circle Stamp #TK6F. For the triangle designs I used the stencil shown. I found it at Michael's Art Store.
Paint colors for these final detail were Burnt Sienna, Gray, Blue Gray, White and Cobalt Turquoise.
