St. Patrick's Day Gnome - Mr. Lucky Charms
Paint your very own lucky gnome!
"Hello! My name's, Lucky. Lucky Charms...and no, I don't have a thing to do with that silly cereal by the same name. Tricks and games are what makes me happy and luck is what you'll have if you can win! Care to try?"
With St. Patrick's Day just a perennial favorite, it seems like the perfect opportunity to introduce Mr. Charms. He hails from Nomleyville and is quite well-known for his fun-loving and playful attitude towards life. He likes to spread good luck and shamrocks everywhere he goes!
This design can be used to makes great cards, framable art and gift tags as well as a fun journal page. If you are not keen to paint the pipe, there is an alternate design available with Lucky holding a gold coin instead.
You are provided with a template to trace so you can jump right into painting this fun guy.
The handout will be yours to keep forever and you'll have access to the videos for a year from the date you sign up!
Laure Ferlita is an accomplished watercolorist residing in sunny Florida. Watercolors, nature, travel, painting on location, sketching for the joy of it, and most especially, color, are her passions!
Vibrant color can be found in almost any subject and its shadows. It is her joy to bring those colors to life on paper with some paint and a little water. For many years, Laure worked as a graphic designer, so you will most likely see a strong graphic element in her work.
She started sharing her joy and love of sketching on location over at ImaginaryTrips.com in 2009 and has helped many "travelers" to find their artistic voice since then.
“Watercolor, for me, is the perfect sketching medium." Laure says. “It provides ease of use, quick color saturation, and clean up is a snap and really, you don't need much equipment. After you move past the hype of how difficult watercolor can be, you find out how much fun it is to get out there and actually create on location. It's way too much fun!"
