Its the season of gifting!! And what better way than to make wonderful miniature paintings quickly to give away as gifts!!
Here’s a short video on how you can quickly paint using Acrylic Paints!!
I hope you enjoyed watching the quick video and would love to try out the method shown, to make a painting similar to this one:
I picked up a piece of chalk board on which I applied a layer of the Mixed Media Paste: White. This would add some texture to my painting.
After it dried, I blended a bit of sky blue which I prepared by mixing Prussian Blue and White. This way I painted the sky.
By using a mixture of Crimson and Prussian blue, I painted the mountain with the help of a palette knife.
I added highlights to the mountain to give the effect of snow covered peaks using acrylic white.
I then painted the tree trunks using brown.
By gently dabbing, I painted the foliage with a flat brush using Sap Green.
Using Black I added depth to the painting.
Here’s a look at the finished piece.
Being a DT member, I got a little pampered this Christmas with this Jar of Mixed Media Paste: Slate. Thank You team Itsy Bitsy!
There are dozens of techniques where you can use the Mixed Media paste. I need to try all of those. But, I somehow couldn’t resist trying out a quick painting using it.
Would you like to try a couple of these quick paintings too?
Do let me know!!
