Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Instructions of this drawing:

  1. Go outside, in this painting is the back yard of my house. Select the flowers that you would like to paint. 2. Draw with pencils first to create a general composition of your painting.
  2. Use your acrylics with lots of water because they flow better, impregnating your canvas, don’t leave spots without paint. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you finish your final painting with oils or acrylics in the top, they look brighter.
  3. Apply a coat of washed Titanium White and Cerulean Blue over the area of the sky and a coat of washed Sap Green over the grass.
  4. Start drawing with Ivory Black: trunk of trees, house (including inside of windows) and details of landscape.
  5. With Titanium White and Yellow Ochre paint over house. Magenta for the flowers of the cherry blossom trees and Sap Green over the dogwood tree.

Canvas: 16″x 16″

Colors:

  1. Titanium White
  2. Cerulean Blue
  3. Yellow Ochre

To our dear family and friends,

This year 2019, God had blessed us and gave us many reasons to be thankful.

The family is doing well, growing and healthy. Summer and Autumn are living permanently with Thommy and April, going to a new school here in Franklinton that they like. James surprised us with a welcome visit. Patricia and David came to visit us for the Allen reunion.

Oil Portrait of my mother Clina Becker

Oil Portrait of my mother Clina Becker

It has been a very sad year for Chile after the continues destruction by communist terrorist. We thank to God that the family is fine. My mother is stable and with a very positive spirit. Enjoying our company when we are able to go to Chile.

We took the granddaughters Summer, Autumn and Melissa to historical sites of North Carolina to learn about the history of our state and about their ancestors. Visited their graves and plantations.

I have to be thankful to my students, they had brought me great happiness seeing their accomplishments and paintings.

The painting in the top is the “Children Sleigh Ride” inspired by my husband Thom’s three children Thommy, Patricia and James, playing in the snow when they were small. Joyful days of growing up in their beautiful farm in Franklinton, North Carolina.

God bless you on this Holiday Season of 2019 and bring you lots of happiness for 2020,

Thom and Clina

*****************************************

A nuestra querida familia y amigos.

Este año del 2019, Dios nos ha bendecido y nos dio muchas razones para estar agradecidos. La familia esta bien, creciendo y saludable. Summer y Autumn están viviendo con Thommy y April, ahora van a un colegio que les gusta, aquí en Franklinton. James nos sorprendió con una linda visita. Patricia y David vinieron a la reunión de la familia

Ha sido un año muy triste para Chile por la continua destrucción echa por los terroristas comunistas. Agradecemos a Dios porque la familia esta bien. Mi madre esta estable y con buen espíritu, disfrutando nuestra compañía cuando podemos ir a Chile.

Llevamos a las nietas Summer, Autumn y Melissa a visitar lugares históricos de Carolina del Norte para aprender sobre la historia de nuestro estado y sus ancestros. Visitamos sus tumbas y plantaciones.

La pintura es “Niños en el trineo de nieve” inspirada por los tres hijos de Thom, Thommy Patricia y James jugando en la nieve cuando eran pequeños. Días felices creciendo en su lindo fundo en Franklinton, Carolina del Norte.

Que Dios los bendiga en estas fiestas Navideñas 2019 y les traiga muchas felicidades el 2020,

Thom y Clina
