INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: When creating this type of loose painting, keep in mind, no two will ever look exactly alike. Have fun with it and just "go with the flow"

  1. Start off with a large brush and loosely paint in a circular motion using Pyrole Red and Primary Magenta. Switch to a medium brush and while the paint is still wet, randomly add small sections of Cobalt Teal Hue, Dioxazine Purple and Titanium White. Lastly, use a medium brush to splatter Hansa Yellow Medium to the middle area. Let dry.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Print provided pattern )and place over transfer paper (refer to photo for placement). Hold in place and trace with a pen. Make these colors slightly transparent by mixing well with water . . . Green Gold, White, Hansa Medium Yellow and Cobalt Teal Hue. Use a medium brush and very loosely paint over the dancer being sure to paint outside of the lines . . . yes, paint outside of the lines! Let dry.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a liner brush to bring out the details by simply going over the existing lines in Carbon Black. Use a large brush and randomly paint color blocks on the right side of the canvas in Green Gold, Cobalt Teal Hue and Hansa Yellow Medium.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a liner brush to free hand this quote (or quote of your choice) "When given the chance . . . Dance"
    Step 3 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

After transferring the pattern (dancer) in step two, if you find the image is too faint, trace over it with a black permanent marker.
