My second wet-on-wet workshop is completed, and I am very pleased with the paintings. This workshop took a bit more time to complete, but the extra time was well worth it. I am so proud of my art students!! Good job!
Remember when the Peanuts character, Charlie Brown, got a rock instead of candy while trick-or-treating? Well, I got a rock…and I painted it!
The gif image shows the steps of the painting process. The smooth stone was first primed with white gesso (3 layers), then painted with acrylic paints. I sealed the water surface with gloss medium and will coat the rest of the rock with matte medium. This should seal it sufficiently for an outdoor display. A very enjoyable painting experience!
