View Full Version : A painting by one of my Clients "signed and sealed"

05-01-2003, 01:40 PM
This painting was done today by one of my clients with learning difficulties, I got him to trace the seals onto a blank sheet of bockingford 425gr, he the painted the seals when dry he masked them out, when that was dry we did a wash of sky and made clouds using tissue, then he did mountains then sea then rocks, I got him to paint the area with water then I dried up unwanted water , so when he touched brush to paper it almost painted its self.

He is over the moon with the picture

Aw Shucks Ruth ,Thank you. Its you lovelly people on here that are giving me the ideas to try with them, but seeing would be believing the level of their ability has increased since I have used watercolours and told them its for grown up paintings to go on their wall.. they now expect to get something good if they try. Its not me saying that its the Managers . previously as we all know the materials were all rubbish so the best efforts only showed as mediocre, the only bit I take credit for is setting the level right for each individual, so they can all achieve in their own way.
