HAND PAINTED HARLEQUIN PATTERN ~ TREE & FLOWERS HAND PAINTED ARTWORK ON GARAGE WALL
This week my client asked me to come by and help her with colors for her patio/entertainment area. I've worked for her for several years and was glad to see some of my work from the past.
I didn't paint this wonderful red chest, but I did paint the harlequin pattern on the wall behind it. This is the dining room and I painted below the chair rail and faux painted above. The faux painting had been painted over, but my client said she would always keep the harlequin because she loved it. She loved country french, so I put a little red fleur de lis as an accent.
Back then I painted the wall a base coat of off white, drew and painted the harlequin pattern, painted it and then aged it with a light antiquing glaze.
LINK TO MY TUTORIAL:
Near her patio the door going into the garage was already red. I rubbed the green on it and painted ivy at the top. I had painted an atrium door and red wood trim around her windows the same way, but they have been painted over. This will be painted over some day, too.
So glad I got to see it again.
I painted this crepe myrtle tree and pots of flowers next to the door. From the pool and patio area it still looks nice, but a little bit faded. This artwork has been there for several years and I think it's held up very well. It wouldn't take too long to freshen and touch up the colors. Maybe I'll get to do that one of these days. Or, maybe it will be painted over.
Glad I have lots of pictures.
