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!!!
