It has been a while since I worked on an old world style mural. One of my favorite things about painting this style is the layering of the washy paints and watching each layer transform the space. Check out the time-lapse video I made of this project and read below to learn more about the design and the process.
This Friday, I am going to share a little bit about my favorite color, Indigo. Indigo, is not just a beautiful color, it also has a rich history. From trade, to cultural significance, and dying techniques, it is truly a color at has roots across the globe. It is no surprise why I often use this color in design and in my art.
In my quest to start taking Friday’s to focus on some positivity and things I love, it is no wonder I chose Chocolate for my second post!
To say I love chocolate is an understatement. It is the one thing in life I struggle with sharing. Truly. Most days I have a little hidden away somewhere that I break a piece off of and enjoy as if time slowed down. I am not sure why. It is up there with my coffee time in the morning.
The Revivalist Spirits Mural is one of the most fun projects I have worked on. I had the opportunity to really think outside of the box and play with some fun ideas.
I recently had the opportunity to paint a mural for the Steel City Coffee House in Phoenixville, PA. This is a unique little space that had some interesting architectural elements, but lacked visual appeal. I designed the mural to have 4 different sections.
I thought I would start taking a little time each week to think and write about something I love and appreciate. For this first Friday Favorites post, I selected Ranunculus. I am a girl who loves flowers and I love gardening. I have quite a few favorites when it comes to flowers, but if I had to pick one, my absolute favorite flowers are Ranunculus.
