I am always looking for new ways to use splattered paint to create art. With Valentines Day less than a month away I added some flower hearts to paint I splattered on a gesso board.
I started with a 6×6 inch Ampersand Gessobord. I painted the background with Golden Acrylic Teal mixed with lots of white. Then using a round bristle brush load your brush with lots of green paint. It needs to be round brush with stiff bristles for best results. I have tried many different brushes for splatter painting and this is the one that works best! Use plenty of paint. A brush filled with lots of paint produces the long grass like splatters, with less paint you get fine speckled splatters. I used Martha Stewart Satin paint in Green Olive and Seaweed. Here’s a video showing how I splatter.
After the green splatters dried I used intense, bright colored acrylic paints to make the flowers. That way I can mix them with white to get different shades. I used a size 2 round brush for all the flowers. The heart flowers are two strokes with the round brush to make a “V” or heart shape. The purple flowers were created with little dabs of paint. After the flowers dried I put a watery bright green paint in a few places and finished with a few splatters of pink and purple with the splatter brush.
