What f I don’t have a good paint brush?

Art on stretched canvas & I did not use a paint brush.  As I created this piece; I thought what if some one didn’t really have an assortment of brushes……..I enjoy finger painting and previous post I showed what small lines can be created with a toothpick. I would like to encourage beginning artists …that you don’t have to spend big dollars to express your creativity.

Upcycle is a way to take something free and change it into an eye catching piece.  The following items needed for this featured image:

I used a wedge spackle knife but a plastic spoon will do

Acrylic paint colors of your choice on 12 x 12″ stretched canvas

I chose the butterfly to be the background.  It always seems butterflies are the focal point.

Paint was applied with my hands ( finger painting) & cotton swabs a lot of people call Q tips

Patience when problem solving

There seems to be an error that makes things complicated.  For example the dentists appointment has to be rescheduled 3 times because somewhere in the system coverage not shown.  Funds are coming out of my pay & human resources says yes there is coverage.

This dental appointment same thing your are self pay until verified.

All kind of thoughts come to mind….not good ones.  Ok there is an error that has occured by click of mouse.  Patience to see it through…that is the challenge.  Learned skill to behave well under difficult circumstances…not easy..

No fear

 

I never thought I would be painting with a toothpick.  The above is camo- colors, greens. & brown’s.   For someone special.

 

The advantage of painting with toothpicks or qtips is you just toss. There is no brushes to rinse.  Instead of continuously washing your pallet you can use a yogurt lid
