and here is my final piece:
I have been teaching myself how to paint so it has been great to take this class, I am learning some new things. The pear itself is scrapbook paper, I learned how to use saran wrap to create the background, and how to use a number 6 round brush - painted the leaves and bees with that one... also used molding paste and a stencil. Now I am working in canvas number 2... will post when I have that one complete. I tried to start it after watching the video and had to laugh at myself when I went back and reviewed the video... I have done it backwards... that's what is great about paint, you can paint over it.
Thanks for stopping by and looking... have a wonderful day!
