Flora Bowley – Bloom True

Posted on: June 12, 2012

Yesterday, I started Flora Bowley’s online course Bloom True.  Our first assignment was to take one of our canvases (at least 24 x 24 – mine is 24 x 30) and start with some warm colors.  She showed us two techniques for our first layer – fluid acrylics and water or smearing the paint on with our hands.  Oh, you know, I went with smearing the paint on!

I used four different colors – red, orange, and 2 shades of yellow.  I love the flow of the paint and how I left it thick in some places.  I actually like it just the way it is, but this will be just the first layer and likely all of this will be covered before the painting is finished.
