The first project from my Canadian Painter in Residence Jelena Pticek is this fun, contemporary cabinet painted in my paint, Chalk Paint®.
Jelena chose to work with a traditional and sophisticated palette of Olive, Versailles and Country Grey. She created a gradient colour effect by applying the darkest colour – Olive – to the top section of the cabinet, working down to Versailles, and then Country Grey. To add a modern touch she used scallop shaped masking tape to create an interesting border where two colours met.
Inside the cabinet Jelena used Graphite, which is both neutral, and dramatic. She then finished the piece with my Clear Soft Wax.
And remember to follow #PaintersInResidence on Instagram and Facebook, as well as my Painters in Residence board on Pinterest.
Absolutely lovely. Canadian know-how eh? :)ReplyDelete
Yep! You Canadians certainly have that 'savoir faire'! Jelena's work is so elegant and contemporary and I'm very proud to show her work off through my Painter in Residence programme!Delete
