Best Friends painting with glazing technique

Here is another painting I completed using Diane Culhane's 'glazing' technique!  I certainly LOVE using this technique to watch all the layers appear! 

I am calling this one "Best Friends". 

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and Break a Bristle.

I am so very excited!!  I just purchased an early Christmas gift for myself.  I will be participating in Carla Sonheim's 2014 year long online class called:  The Year of the Fairy Tale.

These are the kind of presents I love!!  The class officially starts on January 20, 2014 so there is still plenty of time to sign up. 

Carla in an amazing instructor.  I have taken a few of her other classes and have enjoyed each one.

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and ... Break a Bristle.

Diane Culhane's online class: Table Top Drawing and Painting

I finished my final two paintings from Diane Culhane's online class. 

This first one resembles 'poppies' and for a background texture acrylic ground was used. 

This next painting of a teapot and tea cup has a thick gel medium as the background texture.

It was so much fun participating in Diane's class.  I am definitely hooked on adding textures to a background.  I love the results of these two products for adding lots of wonderful texture. 

Happy First Day of December!

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and ... Break a Bristle.
