This was the miniature sea painting that inspired the 30″ X 40″ canvas for my bedroom.
Quite a difference in size!
I don’t have an art studio so when I need to paint something large it winds up being painted in the bathroom. (sigh)
I mixed up the paint colors as close to the soft colors in my new bedding as possible. The paints were also mixed with a generous amount of soft gel medium.
Determined to keep this project simple,I only painted three areas of color: sand, sea, and sky.
I experimented with my cake frosting spatula. I liked the way it smoothed out the color across the canvas.
Using a paper towel, I rubbed some space out of the sky and brushed some muted yellow into the spaces for the sun.
Here’s the picture that’s been in my room forever and doesn’t go with the new bedding.
And here’s the new picture I painted in about an hour, mixing up the colors to match myself.
Hope you’re having a great week and thanks for visiting!
