Cherry Jubilee/Shirley Wilson


I have wanted to paint this design for ages and yesterday I sat down with an 8"x 10" portrait grade canvas and painted it. She is going to be matted with white and will go in a white frame that is beaded. I think she is a misty little dream.
She is painted with Matisse paints, Brenda Harris' clear medium, and I used 2 brushes to paint this. A FM Dynasty Dry Brush and a 15/0
Black Gold Micron Detail Brush. The dry brush worked FANTASTIC to get the soft blending of colors....a toothpick provided the little dots details. This design was easy, worked up quickly and was a total joy to paint and watch her come alive....
