I am ALL about sharing, “My Painting [poh-poo-ree]”.
The Planter is based on the Donna Dewberry’s One Stroke method. I took one class at Michaels. The class provided me with enough information to know that I could paint and with enough practice anything is possible. I walked out of the class thinking that this was going to be like learning handwriting or calligraphy, you have to practice, practice, practice! The dragonfly tile I found at a thrift store. It is a Plaster of Paris casting. I used Soft Chalk Pastels on this project. I just kept blending and blending and blending.
I Picked up the rooster at a local ceramic store had been fired once in the kiln and was in bisque form. I wasn’t interested in firing the rooster in the kiln a second time just to have a shinny glaze finish. I used acrylic paints and then sprayed several coats of a clear acrylic finish. I knew I wanted a bright festive rooster. Do you think I achieved my goal? At first I thought I was going to put him in the garden somewhere. He just hasn’t made it outside. Currently he brightens up my work room. He also makes a great table centerpiece for many different occasions.
