Easy Arts and Crafts Painting Projects : Painting Wood: Making the Design for Wood Painting


Welcome to expertvillage.com. I am Angela
Sage Larsen. I hope you will visit my website at petalwinkthefairy.com. In designing how
your wood piece is going to be painted, you will want to think about where your piece
is going to be used and what your color pallet is. This one is probably going to end up in
my studio since it’s a little flower and I have flowers all over my studio. So I kind
of already know what my pallet is going to be. The other thing you will want to consider
is the details of the piece, this one has a lot of different little details on the surface,
so you have got a lot of opportunities to take advantage of design that is already built
in, you have got some texture on the center of the flower and then because like most pieces
it is three dimensional, you have got all these other fun little edges to consider,
how you want to use. So as I am thinking about my design I know that I am probably going
to want to have it to be pink around the outside and then with these little details in here,
I can add highlights, I am just doing a little sketch of what I think I am going to do, so
that I can have my paints already. So this I am probably going to have a light pink color,
you could use color pencils but I would just like to use a regular pencil because I know
what I am going to do and then the center would be great if it was a nice bright limy
green and then I got these little carved out pieces right here, so I can add some highlights
into there and then the edges, I love the black and white checks, so I am probably going
to throw a few of those in there, and it helps to design your piece not only to know what
colors you are going to use but if you are running low on a particular color you know
what to get at the store. So there is my design and the most important thing to remember is
what inspires you and then you are ready to paint.
