This acrylic Ompir Style Painting Pattern has been created by Susan Abdella.
This charming style of Folk Art reminiscent of the art work created by the one called the Father of Decorative Painting...artist Peter Ompir in the middle of the 20th century. His style of art work is highly sought after today.
NOTE: This painting pattern can be easily converted to fit any surface, would be wonderful painted on an old chair, or even on a group of old painted chairs around a kitchen table! The loose style of painting is well suited to the new painter as well as the experienced artist.
For all the DIY folks out there who love to upcycle old furniture...this painting lesson will teach you how to transform any paintable surface with a bright and happy folk art design.
This lesson comes with written instructions, line drawings and step photos so you can follow along.

***DecoArt has discontinued English Red Oxide, of course if you have it, use it. If this is the case you will not need Burnt Sienna and Naphthol Red Light. A close substitute for English Red Oxide is Burnt Sienna with a little Naphthol Red Light – we can call this ERO mix.
