E-PAINTING PATTERN - Tropical Envy Acrylic Painting by Gaby Hunter



Tropical Envy - acrylic tropical painting pattern by Gaby Hunter.

Learn to paint this tropical composition with Gaby's step by step painting instructions. Gaby describes her painting steps for painting realistic moss, creating the textures of bark, and the translucency of painting a large white orchid. Learn how this white flower is created using many subtle shades of gray and other pastel hues. Gaby walks you through the painting's progression, explaining the color palette as you procede. This painting pattern comes with all the instructions and steps for re-creating this beautiful acrylic painting. Lots to learn in this one! From building depth and dimension using the mottled background to creating textures and amazing leaf colors!

    The picture is wonderful with shades and lights, lots of differences in textures,

    I bought this pattern and have been doing it as a coloured pencil drawing rather than as an acrylic painting and it's actually turning out wonderful. I can get some beautiful colours on the bark and the little bird. I haven't got to the orchid yet but it's going to be wonderful I think. A beautiful Gaby Hunter piece.
