July 2019 – French Quarter Pigeons

French Quarter Pigeons

DecoArt Americana Premium Acrylics

by Sharon Chinn

I’m playing catchup on projects so this one is back dated to July.  My inspiration for this painting was a photograph I took in the French Quarter of New Orleans. My original photograph has just two pigeons, but I thought it needed more for interest, so I worked in Photoshop to add three.

This design is painted with DecoArt Americana Premium Acrylics, using only 4 basic colors so you could easily adapt it to your favorite brand of paint, either acrylic or oil.

I painted the background with a palette knife to keep it loose with a rough textural look since the building was stucco.  The railing and pigeons were painted with brushes.

Pattern includes 12 pages of colored step-by-step photos, supply list, instructions, my original photograph, and line drawings to trace.
