Paint Night

Continuing on in my crafty adventures...
I'd like to introduce you to my very first painting!

 Before the holidays a few friends and I signed up for a wine and paint night at a local bar. If interested sign up here, they host events in New York, Portland and Boston.
I had no previous experience with acrylic paint, so I was a little apprehensive, but the artist walks you through each step.

Below I'll show you exactly what we did.
First we started with a blank canvas,  and a plate with some blue, black and white paint

Mix blue and white and paint the top portion of the canvas; next using only white paint the bottom portion of the canvas

Next, add a skyline using gray paint (mix white and black to create gray), then using gray add two lines coming out from the skyline, creating prespective

From here add trees, using gray, and highlights of white

Add the second row of trees (make the trees darker by adding less white to the black), and highlight the trees with white (snow)

Add a third row of trees using pure black and white highlights

and that's it! Way easier than I ever imagined!
