Rock painting was on my bucket list. I wanted turn a rock to a wild life. This year I did my first rock painting, a deer for my garden. I always wanted to paint furry or feathery creature on the rock. I was amazed by the thought of how painting can transform a hard rock and give soft appearance.
The shape of the rock insisted me to paint a animal. Whenever I looked at the left side of the rock I see the folded back leg of a animal in my imagination. Next step was to decide what animal. As this is for garden, I thought deer is a good choice.
To bring the furry appearance, I painted the rock with layers of different colour with brush stroke in the direction of the hair. I applied dark colour around the leg and head to add shadow. The shadow brings the leg and head to the front (towards the viewer). This added a 3D effect.
Material used for Outdoor rock painting : I used acrylic colour. At the end coated with acrylic lacquer to protect from weather.
