Wood Icing Flowers

This is a 5x7 on watercolor paper and acrylic. The texture is made with Wood Icing and a flower stencil. I really was very pleasantly surprised how the texture added so much interest. Maybe I will try this bigger.
All of these florals are painted first with just a messy all over background then the floral shape and vase is negatively painted. My brain is still trying to adjust to the negative painting because I have always painted positively. The trees are all done this way also.  It's a fun way to paint---when it works! Some of the time it doesn't.

The texture adds amazing interest! Now I have to investigate negative painting... It's beautiful, Martha!

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love what you've been doing with your painted pots, florals, and trees. I'd be thrilled if you'd offer a class on this, or even just a quickie tutorial. You really inspire me!
