Watch my step by step slideshows to see how to build up a painting and then why not have a go yourself using the photographs below? I like to use acrylic paint as I find it a good learning medium - it is very forgiving and if it goes wrong, you just paint over it!
But you don’t have to use acrylic why not try:
Watercolour, oil, gouache
Pencil, pen and ink
Or experiment using mixed media, collage, or printing!
Consider the surface you are going to work on. Will it be canvas? Watercolour or acrylic paper? Cartridge paper? Brown parcel paper? Or fabric? Go mad.
What ever you choose, don’t be scared - have a go and enjoy it!
I’d love to see your results - you could leave it in my guest book or email your artwork to me
