Beach Mixed Media

Hello Friends!

Someone on Facebook asked me how I did the water in my flamingo painting. So I tried to sort of duplicate the process. but of course it came out different. And since I mainly only had the bottom left corner of the 9×12 piece of canvas paper left, I used some watercolors to add little grass mounds with a tiny brush. Then I dipped that same brush in some Van Dyck Brown and pulled back on the brush with my index finger to splatter some sand on the beach.

This was fun and didn’t take long at all. I find it difficult sometimes to explain my process, because I don’t always remember what I did afterwards! I used to write down the colors I used in my paintings and sometimes even what size brushes! But now, that just feels like a lot of interruption to my brain while I’m in the “zone.”

Anyway, I do always feel encouraged when someone says something I did looks amazing and asks how I did it!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. I think it would be easier to watch someone doing it than trying to explain it but no matter how hard you try, it will come out different every single time. Most of art is FEELING. Technique is hard to explain. I did like the flamingo too. Just no time to say so. ;(

  2. That sounds like a good way to make the sand come alive. Great idea.
