Painting Windmill Art

Every time I drive this road

I see a windmill

stand like an iconic country silhouette

 against the sky.





And every time, I think

"I want to paint that".

So my country roots got the best of me.



Pin It!
My wood square measures about 25".

I used cardstock to dip in my paint colors

and drag across the board,

creating a textural and layered background.




Then I transferred my pattern onto the board.




I used aluminum paint and white for my windmill base.

Then I shaded with aluminum and black.




I love the effect of the aluminum shimmer.



Pin It!

I like the art both ways -

with the white frame and without.











I will list these in my Etsy shop soon.

Thanks for stopping by!
