Paint sOmEtHiNg eErie!

paint something eerie

I painted this I believe in 2006?? In an oil painting class I took at school. We did lots of versions of trees and one of them I decided to do a sort of Halloween feel, so now...I decided to incorporate it into my home decor! to enjoy it some and not keep it in a box all year ;)

If you would like to make one for your self, here is what you'll need:
  • Go buy a canvas (or Masonite board/panel as I have used [lots thinner] + a TON cheaper)--got mine from Home Depot [...and just have then cut the main board into all different sizes for a variety and use in other future projects!] ---about 1/4 in thick
***Here is a link to a great site for big panels click here for inexpensive masonite panels online (and i am sure you could ask someone to cut them down for you for free or very cheap at a Home depot!

  • SO YOU DECIDE------If you decide to get the Masonite board you will also need to get some Primer (Called 'Gesso') and apply about three coats before starting your art work (sanding in between is optional depending on how much effort you want to put in or the desired look you are going for) The Gesso gives you a clay like surface and is great for wanting to paint multiple layer (like with oil painting)---otherwise the canvas is already to be painted on!
  • Get some oil paints and brushes and start painting!

Pin It!
