New Lighthouse Painting

I was feeling inspired yesterday to play with the new paints my hubby got me, and I pulled out some background papers that I had painted a while ago to see if there was any that I wanted to add to. I found one I had painted purple and pink and thought “that looks like it needs something on the right…..a lighthouse!!!” and started to draw it in. Then it needed some flowers, sand, and water. Then more flowers, lol.  I love how it turned out! Exactly like I had pictured it in my mind, and that almost never happens!!

I used a micron pen to trace over the penciled lines, then a charcoal pencil for the dark parts of the light house. The rest was done with golden liquid acrylics. Some of the colors I mixed with white gesso to make them more opaque. I used a spray bottle with  watered down acrylic craft paint to spray on the “stars” in the sky. So much fun! I was so excited with how this one turned out, I hung it on my wall already 😀

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!


About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!
