We are using watercolour paints Cotman cadmium red and cadmium red pale paints as combination, for green colour we used Cotman Sap green and Van Gogh Hoocker’s green deep, paper album Fabriano Acquarello cold pressed 300 g/m2.
Technique was advanced, glazing with 3 layers. I am so proud of these master pieces! Will continue to create workshops, already have several ideas.
Recently I discovered that creating your own design for an artwork frame at home, depending on the style of the interior and painting, is great and fun. Besides, nobody knows about your painting better than the author:)
Watermelon and violet grapes in summer with a city and sea view as background.
My painting is meant to be adding some calming look to a room. At any time of year you might feel the midday relaxed atmosphere of a southern Mediterranean city. There are juicy pieces of watermelon on a table with violet grapes in a glass. From a window and a balcony you might see a southern European town somewhere in Italy with red roofs and blue sea in the background.
Painting a frame for a specific interior style is a really interesting creative process;) A stylishly designed frame for a picture can emphasize the interior design, provided that the colors and shades are correctly selected, which can also be traced in the design of the room.
There are some steps to create a unique frame that will be part of your original art and I will share many tips for artists using my experience. More fun is coming in my future posts:) If you would like to learn, please join my monthly art lessons’ club subscription.
Recently there are some questions came from my colleagues artists. How you are presenting your art to the clients, with or without frame? Adding a matt to a watercolor painting or not? Are you buying a frame before presenting it to a client? Standard inexpensive or hand made from a baguette store? At Target, frames are often less than $25. But custom framing is a lot pricier. Frame is always an architectural feature plus preserving an art and integrating it into a design of room. There many questions about framing and artists are looking for the best solution in every situation.
I am going to share my experience of modernization of a standard frame for art, completely immersing in this interesting and creative activity. Well.. various techniques and secrets can be used to update the frame. Which ones? Let’s find out together, thanks to which the process of painting a picture frame at home will be contunuing creativity process.
Please share your experience in comments. Let’s exchange 🙂
