Pandanus Tree

Using Chroma Interactive Acrylics, I practiced on this canvas to get the hang of the product. Fixer is handy since you can do the background first, then apply the fixer, wait a couple minutes and then apply the tree over that. Super fun!

Hi Jeri Yes it is not a common name in NZ Our Boucher side of the family From NZ days came from Christchurch way. My husbands father was a shepherd.

Love your soft brush strokes in your paintings.

Glad to be your friend. This is a cool site for all level of artists and a great learning tool. I am fortunate to live not that far from Richard R. and he is so generous with sharing his skill which he has spent a lot of tome mastering and I have seen it change over the years. Such a talented young man.
