Fanciful Fruit Folk Art by Susan Abdella, MDA
Fanciful Fruit is a Folk Art painting after the style of folk artist Peter Ompir from this last century. The style is casual, whimsical and meant to be simple. Folk Art was the artistic style of the people. Not meant to be a realistic rendering, but a folksy expression of everyday objects and life in general.
The online class shows the student how to paint stroked fruit in a simple, charming manner that is appealing to all.
BONUS: This painting lesson also focuses on painting and antiquing metal and paper mâché surfaces.
Three different designs are offered for you to choose from. The design can also be easily adapted to any surface of your choice. This is a great way to repurpose or update old furniture, serving trays, wooden boxes and so many other surfaces found around the home.
