Hi Friends! Remember the old Dunkin Donuts commercial when Fred the Baker would say “Time to Make the Donuts” over and over again as he went back and forth to the shop? Today I feel like Fred the baker LOL! I have been getting up at 5:30 am to get my kids off to different summer camps (thank goodness for awesome carpool moms so I only have to drive once a day!) and by evening I am ready to drop. Hubby and I are planning on finishing a movie (Word War Z) that we started 2 night s ago, zombies and Brad Pitt, that should lull me to sleep (ha!) but before that I am going to make sure my coffee maker is all set up and ready to go in the morning because I am not as perky as Good ol’ Fred come 5:30. Before I do that I will share this tutorial I did the other day by request of a Facebook friend who wanted to learn how to paint a sunlight daffodil flower against a dark background:
I want to thank Lisa for allowing me to paint her beautiful photograph (and she shared her versions on the facebook page and they looked great!)
Here are the colors I used in Cotman Watercolors by Windsor & Newton”
- Payne’s Grey
- Lemon Yellow
- Sap Green
- Yellow Ocher
I use a 1″ angular wash, #6 round and a #1 liner and I painted on a 140# cold press watercolor greeting card from Canson. If you have any questions or comments you can leave them below, thanks for stopping by and til tomorrow “Time to make the donuts”….er, I mean Happy Crafting!
