0 I was totally inspired by this Painted Paper Flowers project at Pink Stripey Socks and have it planned for my art camp kids tomorrow. This is generally a wet on wet wash using the actual colors of the subject, in this case, red and green for the apples (Permanent Rose*, Napthol Red, and Sap Green). 0 George Rodrigue (1944 – 2013) is best known for his Blue Dog paintings, which catapulted him to worldwide fame in the early 1990s.
