Wave Acrylic Painting- time lapse video and tips

I was little hesitant to try this painting, but I am glad I did give it a try.

This painting was a bit time consuming and complex too, but I managed to complete it πŸ˜€

Tip1:

While painting, if you feel the highlights for the water detail has become too bright, you can just glaze over it with the appropriate shade of color. 

Here is a picture of the finished painting.

I found new jars for the water to clean my brushes.. yay!!.. They are old pickle jars.

I saw this tip on youtube (check this video by Kristy, for more details;time timestamp 4:30 to 5:10) to use two jars of water to keep the brush clean and to have clear water to mix with paint if you need it. I used this approach this time .

Tip2: Use two jars of water

 

 

 

Here are some pics I took while painting. I also managed to paint a tree with the leftover paints πŸ™‚

 

Tip3: When you finish painting for the day and still have a lot of paint left on the pallet, Keep the pallet inside a ziplock bag (I mean airtight bag/container) to save the remaining paint for next day. 

That’s it for today.Thanks for reading my Blog. Hope you liked it.

Yellow and blue bird on a branch-water color painting

My first attempt at water color painting! Reference photo of this ‘yellow and blue bird’ on a ‘spring blossom branch’ is from pixabay.

It is so difficult to control the colors in water color. I hope it gets easier with practice πŸ™‚

Colorful flower vase – flower arrangement – acrylic painting

For this painting I used a photo from pixabay as reference. I liked the way the flowers were arranged and the color combinations.

Painting background was difficult for me . In reference photo background had green, yellow and orange colors in it. So I started with these three colors. But while blending orange and green it created a muddy color which I did not like . I experimented with different combinations until I could get some texture that I can use. It was 4.5″x6″ paper but I had to cut the top portion as the colors did not blend well. So my painting came to a smaller scale.

 

I edited the photo of my final result with a few borders and I liked this below version as it covered the muddy orange-ish background on the top left corner! It cooks like a round canvas, isn’t it?
