Show Your Kansas Spirit With This Easy Step-By-Step Sunflower Painting Tutorial
I’m sure many of us are familiar with those paint-and-sip places where you show up and are taught how to paint something to hang in your home. Even people who say they can’t paint well end up with something looking pretty good that they’re proud of! I hope you enjoy this step-by-step sunflower painting tutorial that’s a great craft to do at home whenever you’re stuck inside and miss the outdoors.
What you need: paint, a pencil, eraser, small medium and large paint brushes, a sponge if you want, something to mix paint on, a washcloth you don’t want to keep, water, and a canvas to paint on.
You can use a piece of wood, a pallet put together in slats, or anything else you like. It doesn’t matter if it’s square, rectangular, or circular! This design works great with just about any shape.
Paint colors I recommend: Teal or blue, green, white, black, yellow, brown, and red. If you have colors closer to what I have in the photo, by all means, use those!
