A couple of years ago I found a water fountain at a yard sale for only $5. I brought it home and painted it. I added some rocks and a little fairy to the top and set it out in my front flower garden. I’m so excited that it’s time to get the fountain out again.
I love sitting on the porch listening to the water and looking at the flowers. It is so peaceful there.
This painting was created using a picture of my granddaughter for the outline. I’m not too good at drawing bodies so I printed the picture out on some cardstock paper and cut it out. Using a graphite pencil, I traced the outline of it onto a piece of wood. The features were lightly drawn in with the graphite pencil and then painted.
I painted in the background using watered down acrylic paints and watercolors. Using a rubber stamp and some white paint, I stamped on some detail in the sky to give it a little texture. I used the paints, watercolor pencils and a white gel pen to create the flowers.
For part of the dress and the headband, I collaged on some pretty flowered scrapbook paper and painted in the top of the dress and pockets.
I think the girl looks so peaceful. Looking at this painting always makes me think of my flower garden in the summer.
I hope your day blooms brightly!
