Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Masterpiece
 
An artist with a feeling,
for everything he'll paint.
Blank canvas is appealing,
no allowance for restraint.

The canvas may be white,
but in his mind it's clear.
His skill will make things right,
intended image will appear.

Black gesso as first coat,
will take away the glare.
As it dries he'll note,
and palette he'll prepare.

The primaries are first,
a blue, a red and yellow.
Black and white, a burst,
the others these will mellow.

No need to draw or sketch,
no outline with a pencil.
No palette knife to etch,
or requirement of stencil.

It's in his mind... he knows,
exactly what he wants.
A massive yellow rose,
the mental image taunts...

The gesso has now dried,
our artist good and ready.
Some colour mixes tried,
his touch is quick, but steady.

Large area from centre,
he will allocate.
A calm stage now he'll enter,
more shades he'll now create.

He'll use a filbert brush,
applying palest cream.
There isn't any rush,
this piece fulfills a dream.

With easy strokes applying,
flecks of light on dark.
The flower's base is trying,
to ignite it's spark.

This has merely tainted,
an area that will settle.
When stem and leaves are painted,
the centre will be petal...

With patience he believes,
this task should be done.
A myriad of leaves,
reflecting summer sun.

The canvas covered now,
with many shades of green.
Three dimensional is how,
the foliage should be seen.

Our artist's at the part,
he's patiently been seeking.
That centre piece of art,
it's colours are now speaking.

A faded shape, pale yellow,
as close to real can be.
The outer shades will mellow,
the flower will stand free.

Rose petals of each shade,
with subtle shadows showing.
Attention has been paid,
the yellow rose starts glowing.

Soft final flicks of paint,
the bristles now release.
At last now with restraint,
he views a masterpiece.
