Barnyard wood and roses 20

Mona Pendleton | Monday, August 29, 2016 @ 11:25 AM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! I had fun hanging out with my dear husband and sweet sister :) Today I have a 12" x 12" painting to share inspired by Gary Jenkins The Beauty of Oil Painting Barnyard Roses video and book tutorial. To begin, I followed along with Gary's book instructions on how to paint a barnyard wood like background using acrylic paints:
After I applied several layers of paint and had achieved the look I was going for, I was able to move on and paint the roses and foliage:
I learned a lot along the way while painting this piece and can't wait to give it another try on a large 20" x 20" or 24" x 24" canvas to hang in my home:


I'm sharing this painting on the Paint Party Friday site:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day!
Be Sweet ;)

So....When is the Art Gallery Grand Opening going to be??? You have painted so many gorgeous paintings that it would simply be a crime not to either share them with the world or have them hang in your home.
I love the way you created the wood wall background and the floral arrangement is pure perfection. I am not an expert in composition and such, but I do know I love this painting and it is stunning!
