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.

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.

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!
