"Dolphins' Dance"

Friday, April 10, 2015

I started this painting a couple of weeks ago, making and transferring the dolphins pattern onto the canvas.   I used a wonderful blue latex wall paint to base coat the entire canvas and the dolphins in black acrylic gesso.  Painting water, to me, is so relaxing. Sometimes when I have trouble falling asleep, I picture a large canvas and painting endless wavelets.    Yes, it does take a few minutes to get the effect of the ocean or a lake but well worth it in the end result of your painting.  There are many class projects available that incorporate water and I promise you will love learning to "paint the waves"!!
