Large Watercolor Letter ‘M’

Hi Paint Party Friends! It seems I’ve been missing to0 many PPF link ups because I’m missing all you guys. Those of you visiting who haven’t heard about PPF , it’s a Linky Party where artists share their paintings….beginners to professionals. It’s a wonderful place to meet other creatives.

Now, onto my recent painting, a Large Letter M. Exciting, isn’t it! I painted this to go on my ‘M’ wall, I got the idea from Emily @ Jones Design Company . I loved her wall so much I had to recreate it in my entry.

I’m making lots of changes to my house, check out my 52 Projects Notebook on Springpad. My goal is to complete 52 projects starting from November 17, 2012 to November 16th, 2013. I will post each project here starting Monday, Dec. 3 2012.

Back to my ‘M’….I sketch this out on large watercolor paper and painted away with my watercolors. I wanted a lot of texture and an old look and that’s what I got. Yay!

When I started painting I thought it was going to be too dark but it turned out just right. I used water and a dry brush over dry paint then added more water.

The paper did ripple a little but it flattened after it dried. After it was dry, I trimmed the edges and stuck it into a frame. What do you think?

I’m posting this project on Monday with a full view of the wall, I’d show you today but I’m still adding some finishing touches.

  1. I’ve been all caught up everywhere but the blogging world, Kristin! And now I come back and see this gorgeous thing. Absolutely elegant. You have a real talent for design!

  2. I love the M. The color is great and the texture just makes me want to reach out and touch it. I can’t wait to see the rest of the wall.

  3. How very cool, a wall with all types of letters. A fun project! I love the very watery painting with the straight lines of the M – great combo! Happy PPF!
