Painting is an essential form of visual arts. The painting describes both the act and the result of the action. Surfaces such as walls, paper, canvas, wood, glass, lacquer, clay, leaf, copper, and concrete are also used to support painting. The art of painting style is developing continually. Some of the conventional painting styles artists follow today are abstract style, the eastern style, modernism, and cubism, etc. Different types of mediums and techniques used for painting are Watercolour Painting, Oil Painting, Ink Wash Painting, Acrylic Painting, Digital Painting, One Stroke Painting, etc.
The one-stroke painting is a technique in which a brush is loaded with two different colours to achieve highlights. This technique helps to make the shading and highlighting in one stroke.
Donna Dewberry, an American artist, claims that she is the inventor and developer of the ‘One stroke’ painting technique. The one-stroke style is required for decorating furniture or for decorating pottery. One-stroke painting is usually based on natural themes like flowers, fruits, birds, butterflies, and dual shade scenarios, which are water, mountain, sky, etc. One stroke painting cannot be painted with any other theme than nature because the shading and highlighting can be painted with one stroke, which is not possible with any other different elements. Artist Mrs. Nirupama Chirmade from Bengaluru is painting for the past 15 years. She was inspired by Donna Dewberry and learned it from her in California, United States of America.
