Before and After OR After and Before !!

Hi, am starting with the After.....................and then tell you all about it.................


the story is, a fortnight ago in Art Class we had to do quick watercolour sketch of a picture of our choice


This is it......

and then we were given an artist to do it in the style of...............mine was Klimt......

This is what I started with..........


Pencil and Texture Paste

added the Acrylics and a Gold Signo pen and ended up with this


the tricky bit was painting the Texture Paste............why is it your hand shakes over the tricky bits.........

Its been a good week craft and artwise  and got a lot done..........woo hoo, but the weather has been a no no, cloud and rain every day...........We missed out on Spring, hope we don't miss out on Summer as my poor old body needs some sunshine..

Thank you for visiting me, take care of yourselves, wishing you a lovely weekend, Happy PPF to the PPF'ers.  Hugs Annette xx

Glad your hand shakes over the tricky bits as well... I really like that finished product and think you were channeling Klimt perfectly...xx

That texture paste can be tricky, you've done brilliantly with it and the rest of the painting. Great Klimt inspired piece.

The colour is just beautiful, I'm a real fan of blues. The texture looks great but I agree it's hard to paint over and my hand always shakes too.

Love those brilliant blues. You did a great job. I'm sure Klimt would agree.

Nic McLean said...

This is lovely. I like that you get to practice doing paintings in the style of a famous artist - gets you trying new things. Perhaps that's what I need to do!

soulbrush said...

Yes it is very Klimt. Love the coloured background. Is texture paste what we think of here as gesso? I love using it. Happy PPF

Love your painting this week, Annette! It is lovely and the colors are rich! Beautiful!

Carolyn Dube said...

Love how this turned out- esp. love the way you used the texture paste!

Lesley said...

I don't know if this will help you, but I discovered a trick to keep my hand from shaking... or should I say that I have noticed WHY mine shakes!

I have noticed that if I concentrate real hard and look at my hand or the end of the brush all at once, my hand shakes. If I cast my eyes just beyond where I want to brush to go, it stops! For example... If I am painting in a straight or flowing line, I don't look at the brush...I look where I want to brush to go.

Try it and see if it helps! Love you wonderful piece. It's whimsical and fun!

Heather Henry said...

Love how this turned out, especially the colors and the textures. It has almost a folk art feel to it, with a bit of whimsy. Have a beautiful week, hope you get to see some sunshine too. :D
