|This design incorporates most of the single strokes, double loading and blending techniques used in Tole painting.||A simple Tole Daisy and leaf project, using a restricted palette of oil colours.|
|Tole Apples - all to do with tonal value and painting rounded surfaces, including shadows.||Basic double-loaded brush stroke work to produce these wild Roses.|
|Strawberries are a favourite subject, this picture is taken from a Tole painted black metal shovel.||This Tole Lemon project is a another good exercise in painting rounded shapes, with contrast.|
|Simple Tole design with Daisies, Leaves and single Lemon, an easy one to try in oils.
Good blending exercise.
|Mushrooms are my favourites, not as easy to paint as some designs, but the effective result is worth it!|
|A decorative almost monochrome design, with emphasis on turned edges and ruffled petals on wood stained background.||Anemonies painted on 100% rag, 140 lb watercolour paper. It would look different on a dark background!|
|Dimerandra Orchid. This striking orchid works well with Tole and looks good on a dark background.||Double loaded brushes to paint this single Rose and leaves. It would look even better on a dark background.|
|People find this picture so attractive. Practice and patience are needed to blend projects to satisfaction.||You need to blend 'with care' using this colour combination to create the ripples in the Pansy petals.|
