Inspiration

Dream Cupboard

by Tim Gould

Painter in Residence Tim Gould was inspired by Mexican folk-art to transform a kitchen cabinet into a bold statement piece using Chalk Paint®.

Paint in Residence Tim Gould started this bold, Mexican-folk-art inspired project by creating a neutral background using Country Grey and Paris Grey, and then highlighted the doors and panels with French Linen. Using Graphite he painted the frames around the doors to create a border. Then, with a small Detail Brush, Tim softened the edges of the frames by applying small dots of lighter colours that were also used on different areas of the cupboard.

Tim created his illustrations on Adobe Illustrator and printed them on to vinyl to use as stencils. He painted these in with Barcelona Orange, Antibes Green, Provence, English Yellow, Emile and other bright colours from the Annie Sloan colour palette. He outlined each image in Graphite and then hand-painted dots and other embellishments to pull everything together.

Finally, Tim painted inside the left-hand cupboard in Graphite, and inside the right in Pure, adding a cartoon image with typography in each. I love how the result reflects Tim’s distinctive wit and personality.

Everything is finished with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
