...'and a Partridge in a Pear Tree' TUTORIAL...

Something of a TUTORIAL...
My most recent painting is finished...I started to photo the process, but after I got
the backrounds based in I got carried away...I LOVE detail work. rough sketch.
Second...a more refined sketch to scale
5" x 7" in this case.

Third...Design is now traced to a Velum so that
I may apply to painting surface.
Fourth...The sky and hillside colors are base coated,
now ready for the actual pattern to be applied.

Like I said...I got carried away.
Once I started painting the subject matter I just kept going.
It's like 'breaking the ice' for me.

***Here is the Finished Piece***

***Here it is Framed***

Just S O L D this
I will have Christmas Cards

Pear shaped ornies...must see,
cause I think they are awesome...
Hope you do too.

An Easter Special - 4 Gourd Eggs

Four Crow Silhouettes
on Four Egg Gourds

I just finished these 4 different crow silhouettes
painted on 2-1/2" to 3" gourds.
They have been finished with wax polish for protection
and to augment the natural beauty by enhancing the patina.
I am showing them nested on a bed of Spanish Moss
Just in time for a Country Primitive Easter
Anytime of a Country Primitive year.
