Acrylic painting pattern - Little Gardner



Acrylic Painting Techniques for Beginning Artists are always in demand. This painting pattern, "Little Gardner" is a fun and fairly easy study of a looser, more casual, contemporary style of painting.  There is some wet in wet blending - but it is not refined or structured. The beginning artist will elearn how to create texture and interest with easy painting techniques. 

Experience a loose style of painting: Notice the edges of the elements are not sharp and defined, they are more casual.  The painting technique called, stippling...does a fine job of creating the texture of the flowers and grass areas, this also helps to create a strong contrast between light and dark values.  This is a great little study piece for the artist who likes more of a contemporary style composition.
