One stroke technique garden flowers

1 Comment

Here are the pictures I did with acrylic paint mostly on freezer paper.   The technique is called one stroke from Donna Dewberry.   What happened is I watched her video lesson on how to paint the flowers and paint them along with her.  I will put them up in the order I painted them.  Keep in mind that this is practice so I can learn the technique.  I took a few classes on this technique when I first left work 10 years ago and haven’t done much with it since then so I am pretty out of practice.  I felt good enough about doing them that I didn’t get discouraged and throw them out.

The first one is assorted wildflowers.

The next one is wisteria and that is painted on water color paper but still acrylic paint.

Next is a sunflower

Now to roses.   They are not as hard as you might think but still the most challenging so far.

And the last one I did that day is assorted garden flowers.

This is all the paintings on the first VHS tape.   There is also a fruit and animal video, holiday ideas, more garden flowers and landscapes.   I’m going to work on the garden flowers today.

A side note, after getting used to using DVD’s with menus so you can pick which chapter you want, working with VHS tape is really awkward.
