What You'll Need
Small Paintbrushes for details
8-by-8 Inch Canvas
Paint Palette or Plates
1. Paint Background
Blend two to three light colors on a small canvas to completely cover the background. Don't forget the edges!
2. Sketch Flowers and Vase.
Use a pencil to lightly sketch out abstract flowers in a fun vessel. Don't be afraid of imperfections--it adds character and whimsy to the scene! Here are some sample flower and leaf shapes.
3. Add Base Color
Use a medium paintbrush to fill in the flowers and vase.
4. Add Details
Using a small paintbrush add lines and define petals. You may also want to use oil pastels to outline or add texture to your art.
5. Dry and Seal
After your artwork has had a chance to dry, spray with a clear sealer to protect your paint from chipping or oil pastels from smearing.
