I Got A Rock

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!
