Rock Painter - new to WC

Hi everyone, I thought I would introduce myself(I also put an intro in the welcome forum)...my name is Terri and my primary art form is painting on rocks! I use acrylic and am self taught using the books by Lin Wellford (sp?)...that was 14 years ago...I am still going strong!

I have also started painting on canvas, art journaling and learning watercolor, plein air etc. This is only my 2nd post so I'll make another with a few photos!

Smiles
Terri

Very nice! Believable. I think if I saw that on the floor in a corner (not knowing, of course) it would startle me.

Re: Rock Painter - new to WC

I am interested in doing some of this for my garden - what type of paint did you use?
Thanks
Pam

Re: Rock Painter - new to WC

Hi there! I am fairly new here to, but I paint on rocks, sceneries and such. And one of my favorites is slate. I use acrylics most of the time, I have used oils to though and they worked very nice.

Re: Rock Painter - new to WC

Very Nice work Terri! I have done some rock paintings myself so I realize the challenges in it such as finding the right shape rock to fit the form you are going to paint or letting the rock shape tell you what it wants to be painted

Re: Rock Painter - new to WC

Hi Teri, sorry to be late in replying...I did read your post back then but didn't have time to post. I too have done rock painting and have all of Lin Wellford's books. Yes Jennie, I find the rock shape will have a say on what it will be painted to look like.
I use cheap brushes and acrylic paints. There is also "Patio Paint" for this and it's a little more thicker...like plastic.

For those who want to try she also has a site. http://www.linwellford.com/

There is also a rock painting club on Yahoo with loads of members that will help with any questions. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rockpainting

also do a Google search for more and don't forget YouTube has videos. I do have some rocks in my picturetrail site.
