What You'll Learn

This is a really fun painting to create, and not too difficult to tackle.

Give this one a try if you want to bring a little bit of humor and sunshine into your day!

In this painting you'll be able to do the following:

  • Use comparative measuring to map out the drawing.
  • Create multiple layers of graded washes in the sky with noooo brushstroke lines!
  • Use my signature layering technique with masking fluid to build up the colors and textures in the middle of the sunflower (Soooo much fun!).
  • Practice restraint when painting the Chipmunk. You don't want to overwork the little fellow, and loose the light from the sun shining down on him!

FYI: If you have never used my layering technique with masking fluid before, then you are in for a real treat!

Follow what I do exactly here! I don't normally say that, but in this instance you will want to, because it can be a little bit scary painting the colors and shapes in reverse. Trust what you see me do, and in the end you will be amazed with the outcome when you rub off the masking fluid to reveal what's underneath!
