It finally came together

I did the gray underpainting with Annie Sloan Paris Gray chalk paint

Then vertical strokes and a horizontal band at the bottom with Behr flat white wall paint

More vertical strokes with Devine Colors Twig acrylic paint from Target

I used Golden acrylics for the brushed gold band and squeeze bottle Golden gold and silver for the accent stripes

I laid the canvas on a flat surface while drying to prevent further dripping

After drying for 48 hours, I applied 2 coats of clear varnish

I had fun styling it in my dining room

I did a mock up with PicMonkey to show how it’s going to look in DD’s house

Her request was for a plain, as in “not busy,” mostly white painting.  I used gold & silver accents to coordinate with her gray and white decor and the paintings nearby

Falling Gold is visible just around the corner in the dining room

I hope she likes it!

  2. I love these tutorials Jenna! I am hoping to get back to my paints in a few more weeks. I have missed it and love this series of soft colors you have done. Breaking waves is my favorite but this latest reminds me of winter birches in Canada and I quite like it too.

  3. This looks just terrific. The tutorial facts are really helpful. I always feel a little out of my element with abstracts and somehow you really do help me get out of my comfort zone — for which I thank you!

    I feel like dressing up like Audrey Hepburn and standing in front of it, taking in the classy feel.

    My talented friend! Abstracts are interesting, not something I can do, so I love it when I see one that is appealing.

  12. Your painting is lovely…thank you for the tutorial. I always wanted to paint something myself but since stick figures are about as artistic as I am nothing ever came of it. You have given me new inspiration! I would love for you to share your projects with us at the Friday Favorites Link Party http://lightandsavvy.com. Hugs- Christine
