Painter in Residence Karen Donnelly used Chalk Paint® to update this cabinet with an elegant riverscape depicting sailboats on her local river.
Karen is an artist who normally works in oils and watercolours. For this project though, Karen experimented with Chalk Paint®.
She took this modern piece of furniture with simple lines and shapes – a piece that lent itself well to being painted in this manner as it wouldn’t detract from the landscape. Karen painted the cabinet with Chalk Paint® in Duck Egg Blue to create the background colour. She then painted the riverscape using a simple palette of Old White, Napoleonic Blue, Antibes Green, Olive and Arles, and mixes thereof.
The piece is finished with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax for protection.
