Folk Art Painting - Fruit Still Life Painting with stenciling - Acrylic Downloadable Pattern:
In Folk Art decorative painting, the design we choose has a lot to do with the style of surface we are working with. Sue Pruett selected a 14" wooden plate that can be used to add a touch of bright color to any home decor.
With traditional folk art painting, we can either choose a design to reflect the era or we can do something totally unusual, in this case the use of brighter colors was used to create a more modern flair.
Usually folk art designs can go on any surface by simply changing the design layout and or the painting techniques used. We can paint them with simple loose folk art methods or use more detailed painting styles. The choice is up to the artist.
Color coordination as well as style also plays a big role. Artist Sue Pruett has created a simple fruit motif on a rich dark background. She embelished the outer rim of the plate using a soft gold traditional stencil design.
