I attempted more whimsical painting this weekend, this time doing project 2 of the Painting for the Heart Class by Juliette Crane. Being the “rebel” that I am, I wanted to do my own thing, yet learn the new techniques of loose and whimsical painting. The prompt was 3 lions, but I thought it would be fun to do 3 whimsical girls…like sisters.
So that is what I did…and it turned out rather weird. They look a lot like bobble heads, but oh well. I like the way the paint pooled for their lips and their rosy cheeks. That’s my favorite part.
But then I decided to go ahead and try to do the lions in the prompt.I used different paint colors for the background, but really tried to do the lions like Juliette Crane did. I’m happy with them, and feel like I am learning a little about being looser.
Here are a few pictures of the process…
And here are a few pictures of the lions during its creation.
