When I was given the opportunity to paint a resin angel for the Artists Club, with a spring theme, I did a little research to find out what colors would be trending for 2015. A report from the leading color experts, revealed; Strawberry Ice, Custard, Classic Blue, Aquamarine & Glacier Gray (along with a few others) would be the “hot” colors for spring.
To me, spring means life sprouting, birds returning and tree’s flowering. With this in mind I chose the trending color combination to bring the angel to life by painting a full scene to cover the entire front of the angel’s skirt. Including tulips and birds, spring arrives with a blossoming tree, watering can and an old fence. The flower that the angel is holding I made to be a mock bird bath and is actually a useful tea lite candle holder.
