It is so time to paint something Spring!
I'm always ready for warm spring reminders on my wall
so I start painting those hopeful signs now.
You can too!
Any wood or canvas surface will do.
This nest art is 22" x 22".
Start with a brown wash
White over top leaving an 11" circle.
Here are the colors for the golden nest:
The center brown is a mix of black and chocolate bar.
Alternate yellows and pull a flat brush
around the nest in a wave motion.
Then use a smaller round brush and do the same.
Then again with a fine liner and add some white.
Make an egg template, trace with chalk,
and fill in with white primer.
Shade with turquoise and aqua
giving a good white highlight.
Shade inner circle with brown.
Ashley's large brown egg painting in her book "Handmade Walls"
got me started!
Though there is not paint instruction for this project,
there are so many other great frame ideas!
You know you want some happy spring art too!
Hope you get your brushes out : )
This helps me get through winter and look forward to Spring.
Two years ago at this time
I made some other Spring Art
that you might want to try.
This could be a great project this February Weekend,
