Sisters Love Painting, Instructions and Supply.
Painting of two sisters sharing their love with red poppies. From the collection of the Colonial People of North Carolina.
- Start by drawing the sisters and landscape.
- Give a soft coat of acrylic gold to the canvas. Gold is very good for under-painting, it creates a worm color that once you put the oils or acrylics in the top, they look brighter.
- Next paint landscape, starting with the sky, grass, house, trees and finally red poppies. You can do it with oil paintings or acrylics.
- Sign your work of art.
Acrylics: There are many brands of acrylic paintings that I have tested but the one that I like the most is: SOHO, Urban Artistic Acrylic: Excellent paintings, sold at more reasonable price by Jerry’s Arterama. 3060 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609. (919) 876-6610.
Oil Paintings: You can buy them at Michael’s, ACMoore, but again the most affordable ones are at Jerry’s Arterama and their brand is LUKAS.
