Hello friends! I am beside myself right now, I posted this video on YouTube yesterday and it already has over 4000 views! Cool! I am so glad people are painting! It is such a fun pastime and it can be really easy when you know a few tricks…like how I painted these raspberries, watch the video to see how:
I really like this lesson because you get to practice the technique on the paper before it counts. By working on a wet background the pencil-eraser stamped berries get blurry and look farther away, then after the paper is dry the berries you tapped on because crisp and in focus. I also like how painting with a pencil eraser gives you an automatic shade and highlight. I hope you take the techniques you learn in each of my tutorials and apply them to other things you want to paint. The x-acto knife highlights are great, I have used that technique many times. I realized watching the video back that you could use a push-pin to do the same thing and it would be safer too, A great option for kids who paint! I hope you liked this painting project and til next time happy crafting!
