PAINTING INSTRUCTIONS
(Refer to color worksheet throughout)
Roses:
Double load the #12 flat brush with Rose Garden and Wicker White. Paint the outer skirt first. Then paint the inner skirt, comma stroke and place bud. Alternate using Yellow Ochre and Butter Crunch for yellow roses. Paint all the roses and the buds.
Trailing Flowers:
Double load the small scruffy with Dioxazine Purple and Heather. Side touch some Wicker White on the Dioxazine Purple side. Pounce the shape of the trailing flowers. Double load the #8 flat brush with Dioxazine Purple and Wicker White. Paint the trailing flowers at random over the pouncing that was just done. Alternate using Heather and Wicker White. Dip the end of the liner brush into Wicker White and dot the centers of the flowers.
Wiggle Leaves:
Double load the #12 flat brush with Thicket and Wicker White and following the worksheet, paint the leaves.
ONE Stroke Leaves:
Double load the #12 flat brush with Thicket and Wicker White. Start on the chisel edge. Refer to the worksheet for a tip to show your students a quick way to learn the ONE Stroke leaves. Paint the leaves.
Heart Shaped Leaves:
Double load the #12 flat brush with Thicket and Wicker White. Starting on the chisel edge and ending on the chisel edge, turn the brush slightly to paint the heart shaped leaves. Remember the more pressure that you apply to your brush the larger the leaf.
Finish:
Allow to dry and spray with 1-2 coats of FolkArt Clearcote.

BIOGRAPHY
Pat Brannon is fulfilling her life long dream of painting and teaching others the fun and relaxation of the hobby she began years ago. Pat began painting at a young age but gave up painting for a rewarding career of marrying and raising 4 beautiful daughters. Then she realized that children get into the habit of eating, so she embarked on a career in marketing. The girls married and moved away (not too far) and started supplying the Brannons with wonderful grandchildren. Soon it was time for 20 years in the business world to end and Pat decided it was time to enjoy the 8 world's best grandchildren. We can now add 2 great grandsons.
The baby daughter thought otherwise and convinced her to take up the hobby she left behind. She introduced her to the ONE Stroke Painting world and the rest is history. No more so clean you can eat off the floor, cook and housekeeping Mom. Pat was hooked. If doesn't move to fast, paint it!
Pat became an OSCI and is proud to say 3 daughters are OSCI's. Three of her ONE Stroke students have become OSCI's also. She offers classes in her studio in Plant City, as well as private or group classes throughout Central Florida. She teaches monthly at 15 different locations and many demonstrations throughout Central Florida. So much for retirement, but what fun she is having and introducing so many nice folks to the ONE Stroke painting technique.
To add to all the fun Pat is joined by her husband Ted, who recently retired and has become her chauffeur and assistant. They are together 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and having a great time. The ladies all give him kisses and the men just shake his hand. What is even a bigger miracle--no fights or boredom yet!

PAINTING INSTRUCTIONS
(Refer to color worksheet throughout)
Hibiscus:
Double load the #12 flat brush with Dioxazine Purple and Wicker White. Starting on the chisel edge paint the hibiscus. This stroke is exactly the same as the wiggle leaf except there is no v when you begin. Also it can be painting in one solid stroke or two halves.
Hibiscus Buds:
Double load the #12 flat brush with Dioxazine Purple and Wicker White. Paint the buds. This stroke is very similar to the ONE Stroke leaf. There is a little more of a turn on the brush however.
Stamen:
Load the script liner brush with inky Thicket. Paint the stamen by pulling up from the hibiscus. Double load the small scruffy with Wicker White and Butter Cup. Pounce lightly the tops of the stamen.
Wiggle Leaves:
Double load the #12 flat brush with Thicket and Wicker White and following the worksheet, paint the leaves. This leaf has more of a rough tip unlike the ONE Stroke leaves.
ONE Stroke Leaves:
Double load the #12 flat brush with Thicket and Wicker White. Start on the chisel edge. Refer to the worksheet for a tip to show your students a quick way to learn the ONE Stroke leaves. Paint the leaves. With the same brush paint the calyx on the buds.
Finish:
Allow to dry and spray with 1-2 coats of FolkArt Clearcote.
