WP Weekly Workout- Week 12: Petal Painting with Paul (Cezanne)

Leave a comment

Paul_Cézanne_207Dip, draw or paint your favorite blooms or the whole bouquet! Looking at this Paul Cezanne painting for inspiration, notice the focus on color and form.   Don’t get caught up in the details, try to concentrate on the larger shapes and the interplay between outlines and blocked-in color.  Need some inspiration?  Swing by your local florist or, if you’re lucky enough, maybe you have something growing in your flower beds already. Set them where natural light will enhance their splendor and sit back and paint the view. Caran d’Ache Neo-color II crayons are the happy medium between drawing and painting! Just add water!  Have some fun with these crayons and really see all that they can do.

This week at Wet Paint Caran d’Ache Neo-color II crayons are 15% off our everyday price, in both open stock and sets! They are a great addition to any travel kit, plein air set up or every day tool box! Also great for mixed media and art journaling!
