Dresdens with the American Style!!!!!

Hi there!

Today I got my digital camera from the electric shop where I bought it. I took some my newest Dresden plates’s pictures immidiataly!

I’m happy that I can show my newest artwork here again!!

I painted them with open medium and named the techniques Dresden with the American style because I usually paint Dresdens with fat oil.

I used some San Do’s painting medium and mixing medium, but I’m happy they seem to be as pretty as painting with some fat oil.

I used my Dresden teacher, Alfredo Tradano’s Dresden patterns, but I I painted them with some Japanese colors for Dresden, some Japanese and British blushes that I’ve been used to, some San Do’s mixing and painting medium. I designed them by myself. I think for Dresden beginners, using some open medium is much easier to handle. I like this techniques.

Which one do you like the best?

  1. Oh, Yumi, those are very good. I used to do with open medium when I paint Dresden Style, but I didn’t get such a bright color like this.
    I always feel your paints are very aculate and crispy. I love it!!

    • Thank you so much for the comment, Akiko-san!

      I think it relates to how much push the blushes and put colors on them. When I paint, I always put a lot of colors on my blushes and push them very hard. That’s why my work seems to be more clear and sharper.

    • Akiko-san.

      Are you interested in my Dresden colors? Compared to American Dresden colors, the Japanese colors are much more intense. If you want some of them, I can order them for you and will bring them to Michigan. Let me know if you want.

  2. What à lovely work! The colors are intense and your paint is so précise!
    I love them all, but my favorite one is thé Baby plate

      I’m so glad that you like my artwork!!!!


  4. They are all lovely!!! A favorite would be hard to pick – each has a different aspect I like. I wish I had ordered all of the colors you use in the Dresden. If it is not too late for you to order them, get me one of each. See you very soon!

    • Hi, Dixie.

      I got your orders. I have to orders mine, Helga’s and yours. I will order them tomorrow. You also need some blushes, right?

  5. OK, I like plate 2 and 3 but I love the border on the baby plate!

    Very nice Work Yumi you student there are lucky too have a good teacher like you, love Helga

    • Hi, Helga.

      Thank you for the compliment. I’m also lucky because all my American students are very diligent and love learning new things. I think this project is good for them to start painting with the Dresden style. After they understand how to paint Dresden, I want to teach them how to paint Dresden with some fat oil.

    Your work is beautiful and so precise. Loved our one on one rose lesson. Thank you for all you do for this art form.

    • Hi, Linda!

      Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving several comments! It was a great presure for me to meet you in person! I also enjoyed painting the Nyon roses with you!

  10. SO pretty, thanks for sharing! I love the baby plate for the simple fact of it’s sentiments. I just started painting plates for crafting gifts but am finding the paint layers to not lay smoothly. I am using Martha Stewart pain which is listed food safe since I want the items to be able to be used. Any tips?

    • Hi, Aly.

      Nice to meet you and thanks for visiting my blog! To be honest with you, I’ve never used my hand painted plates for food, lol.
      Thanks for the tip! I’ve never used the Martha Stewart paint and I’m very curious about it.

  11. Linda Badgett Says:

    The baby plate is my favorite. The border is intriguing! Would like to know how to do that

    • Hi, Linda.

      Thanks for asking. I didn’t use any specific techniques. There was the color blue on the plate, and I painted the roses with some white paints. That’s all. It’s very easy. Try it!!!
