Fall Fishin' Canvas

Hello from Joi@RR!

I grew up near the lake at Branson Missouri and fishing was a joy for our entire family. Today, at the ranch, we have three ponds plus a lake nearby.  Although, in Texas we don't usually have vibrant fall foliage my painting could definitely be a Missouri scene!

I used a really fun fishing digi image for the next 
Through the Craft Room Door Challenge for Sept. 26.

This project is on a 14x18 wrapped canvas. 

This first photo is of the original layout with the digi image and the StencilGirl Windswept Tree Stencil.

The tree was traced in pencil and permanent marker.
Then the entire sky (including the tree) was painted
with DecoArt Media Cobalt Teal Hue. 

The field was done in English Red Oxide, Cadmium Orange and Diarylide Yellow. 

The water is a mix of Gesso and Cerulean Blue. 

The tree was then filled in with Crackle Paint and a bit of black gesso for the hollow tree parts. 

And here is the background finished... 
waiting on the crackle paint to dry. 

After the crackle was dry I began adding the color to the tree using Antiquing Cream in English Red Oxide and Raw Umber. Just add and wait for it to dry - wipe and add more until you're satisfied.

Then the fun part... adding brightly colored leaves!

I also added Fluid Acrylic Paint and Metallic Lustre to the tree limbs and leaves.  I just have to have a bit of shimmer!!

The digi image was colored with Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens. I used these in almost every art project that I do. They are my favorites in a permanent pen. 

The digi image was placed onto the canvas with Matt Medium.

I few photos of the finished image.

I so love the colors of fall and had a great time sharing them as a background for this super neat fishing digi. 
Thanks to each of you for visiting my blog!!  Xj.
