Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Using plastic spoon and Styrofoam bowl, mix Burnt Umber paint with two spoonfuls of Snow Accents. Paint this mixture on the top left corner of the canvas to create the rough texture center of flower. (Tip: a pallet knife usually works well for this.) Allow to dry.
  • 2
    Use a toothpick to add dots of Light Buttermilk, Bright Orange, Bright Yellow and Lamp (Ebony) Black around the curved edge of the brown center.
  • 3
    Paint sunflower centers using Marigold and Bright Yellow. Add Burnt Umber shadows around each petal. Accent with Light Buttermilk. (Tip: when blending and adding shadows or accents, use the flat angle brush and double load with two colors. One color is the main color being used and the other color should be the accent or shading color. This is called double loading and is used often in painting.)
  • 4
    Finish the canvas with desired sentiment in Lamp (Ebony) Black as shown or as desired. Allow to dry.
