Painterly-My New Found Passion

DSCN4309Painterly is a technique in art where the artist does not try to hide the technique used in creating his or her piece of artwork.  Brush strokes are left visible, texture is evident.  Painterly celebrates the type of medium the artist uses.  For example, watercolors, oils, or acrylics.  I used the painterly technique with my latest cigar box…sneak peak here because it’s not completely finished.  The brushstrokes are blended but not too blended and the paint is rough not smooth.  Lots of texture.  I love it!
