One more great Sugarprism painting adventure, under the guiding hands of Michelle. Her Facebook group is one fun virtual spot, with free online lessons for anyone who wants to join. Here is the link to her Sugarprism site and to her Facebook group.
It is very hard for me to believe that I painted that image free hand, just following her instructions. Such a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon! The Sugarprism product, which I have raved about plenty in the past, behaves just like acrylic paint. It is very forgiving if you make boo-boos, and the colors blend like a dream. My main issue is working with fine lines. I wear mono-vision contact lenses and that makes it very hard to focus correctly. Fine lines are a big challenge for me. But I try my best. Below, some photos of the different stages, as Michelle tells exactly how to paint each line, fill the image and make it sexy with all the shading. She is incredibly talented!
If I could do it again, I would change just two things: lighter background and brighter, maybe yellow flowers. Sometimes when you are following things online and you need to keep the pace, it is hard to visualize the bigger picture. Knowing how the image turned out, I think my background could have been lighter. But it is a minor thing. I am absolutely thrilled with my baby!
Michelle, thank you once more for the instructions and for the effort you put to teach anyone, no matter their skill level… it is just a total thrill!
