Colorful Rain & Silhouette Canvas

This project was inspired by EasyMeWorld.

I wanted a silhouette of a mother and son, so I searched the web for ideas, and there were tons. I found a few that I really liked and used my Microsoft Paint 3D to ‘tweak’ parts of them into each other and added a silhouette umbrella. You can find just about any image as silhouette that would work great!


 

Supplies:

 

This is what my edited paint 3D image looked like…

Not the greatest, but it worked well enough to just trace onto the canvas. 😎

I taped the printed out silhouette to the back of the canvas to trace…

I then covered my drawing with tape, like so…

Luckily I had a ton of acrylic paints to use from my Mother that she had left over from her paint projects. I have seen quite a few projects like this that do rainbow colors, but I wanted something ‘Spring-y‘, so I went with more light colored paints.

I had small cups and added the colors I was going to use, then added water to them so that they would drip down the canvas easily. There’s a great tip over at the site listed above on how to keep your colors from running into each other.

I let it dry and pulled the tape off from the drawing…

I did a little touching up with white paint on a few spots, then I took the black paint and painted in the silhouette drawing…I felt like the bottom beneath the the silhouette needed something, so I added a puddle on the bottom with the same colors as the rain…

 

I love how it turned out! ♥
