Summer Garden

Yay, summer is here! I can’t wait to get out in my garden and paint! Life began in a garden, so what better way to kick off summer than with a garden painting! A summer garden is such a great subject to introduce basic acrylic painting techniques like wet-on-wet; scumbling; dry brush; and impasto. I think you’ll find walking through the process of designing a garden with paint is like a walk in the park (but even more fun)!

Now, wouldn’t it be fun to invite some friends over for a summer garden party (inside or out)?

En Plein Air

Painting “en plein air” (in the open air) is one of my favorite pastimes, especially in the summer months. It’s even more fun with a group of friends! I really enjoyed celebrating the first weekend of summer by painting bright red geraniums in a window box with thisĀ group of fun ladies!
