I went to a Brush Party in downtown Phoenix with a friend. The theme: Pop-Art Your Pet. So I decided to give Paris-Ivy the pop-art treatment. Here are some photos to document the experience.
I had to email a high quality photo to the instructor who then put the lines you see on a 16x20 canvas.
The first step was to outline the outside edges of the drawing. And then ... use a light gray color to act as a primer for the background. This was acrylic paint so it dried quickly.
I then painted the other lines before moving to the next step: the background. For Ivy's pop-art, I used a lavender background.
Yes, indeed ... a green Boxer! Painting in the main color was first, followed by any accent colors. You'll notice that Ivy's black eyebrow is now purple. Whoa! My elementary teacher would probably blow a gasket! But what's the point in doing a pop-art piece if you make it real?
Add a few accents to the background, a "signature," and it's done!
Pop-Art ... Paris-Ivy!
Now I have to find a frame. :) This little project took three hours and we got to bring some wine/beer and snacks with us. It's a lot of fun and these outfits are all over the country ... find one and give it a try!
