Sharing is caring!

Over the past few months I have been extreemely unwell. I am not sure what the cause of this is. I have a number of health conditions including Adrenal Insufficiency and serious deficiencies of vital minerals and vitamins and as a result I have had no energy and have been feeling pretty down in the dumps. It’s true, being unwell can cause you to feel quite rubbish at times.

A friend suggested I take up rock stone painting. It’s something I tried about a year ago and it did not work. So I decided to try it again. This time I made sure I researched the best paints and tools to use and it has helped me to slowly improve my rock painting skills. Today I am sharing my recent painting of a Bichon Dog.

So the things you need for painting a rock are simple. A rock, posca paints and a pencil.

I bought a bag of rocks from a local Garden Centre and got some lovely Posca Paint Pens for my birthday.

You can use a number of different painting options but I liked the pens.

The first thing I did was to draw the outline of a dog on the stone.

Once this was done I was ready to paint.

I painted the dog white and then added some red for the tongue.

I painted the mouth black however I did not like the look so I painted over this when it was dry with white.

I then used a thin black pen to draw the outline of my Bichon Dog.

Finally I added a dog bone to add a little personality to the stone. Do you like it? I sure do!

I am really looking forward to making more rock art and sharing it here on the blog.
