Roses and Butterfly Downloadable Painting Pattern By Susan Abdella
Learn how to create this rose design featuring Susan Abdella's popular Folk Art stroke roses. In this design, Susan has included a tiny butterfly to enhance this sweet decorative design, as well as simple liner work and cross-hatching to add interest to the overall painting composition.
Paint a charming serving tray, or adapt the floral design to many other surfaces, such as canvas or even small painted furniture. Stools, table tops and wooden chairs will look lovely in a powder room or even a little girl's bedroom. Use your imagination, roses look great painted anywhere!
Besides the construction of the rose, the written lesson places lots of emphasis upon transparent glazing techniques. A faux finish using mica gold paint is used to decorate the edge of the tray and to frame the design.
|This painting lesson is created using artist's acrylics, but with a little conversion, oil paints can also be used. This of course will take longer to dry, but following the step by step instructions, you will soon learn how fun it is to build a rose flower one petal at a time.|
