This is just a short post of my latest painting that was SO much fun to create. A few years ago I had found this wood board at a flea market. It's 20 x 20 with a 2 inch raised edge on 3 sides--not exactly sure what it was meant for, but for me, painting on it was the thing to do. My first step--
I painted the board with my background colors adding and taking away and a little stenciling. This is the warm-up part and the most forgiving, because if you're not happy with it--just cover it up with more paint. And then I added the row of paper houses across the bottom.
Next came my rooster--
.....the first layer...
and then some texture and more collage--
Some finishing details with some black paint to define the edges and add some shading--
And the completed piece--
This piece came together very easily for me--no struggling on this one--most likely because I enjoy painting on wood, and I love painting roosters! It's always better when you're able to do what you love most--whatever it is :-)
