A Rose Garden Painting

kraftylady23May 15, 2008

I tried to post this and was pretty sure I did it right, but I don't see it. So if this is duplicated I am sorry. Here is a picture of my rainy day project yesterday. It is a Jeanne Maurer design and a free download from Artistclub.com. This is a first for me of shaded roses, so I know it is not great, but I am happy with it and know the more I practice I should get better. Thanks for looking.

Very pretty, Donna, Nice design with the roses and the dragonfly and your crackle finish turned out great too. And I even love the candle holder you used on it. Such a nice way to spend a rainy day too. ;o) Luvs

The roses are pretty and I love the colors you used...could never tell it's your first time doing them, but that dragonfly is totally awesome! What a wonderful piece and I agree...a great way to spend a rainy afternoon!

Donna, this is very pretty. I think you did a great job. I am not familiar with Jeanne Maurer but will look her up.

It looks great!

Did you crackle it first and then paint the detail on top of the crackling? What is that like?

I crackled the boards first and then I actually sealed it with a sealer so that the roses would not look crackled and have a smooth finish to paint on. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for the compliments.
