Cherry Blossom Canvas

We found this great DIY Cherry Blossom Canvas tutorial at Eckersleys. All of the products used in the project are available at Eckerslys Art and Craft Stores.

Level: Beginner Time needed: Approx. 2 hours (excluding drying time)

What you need: 

Jasart Décor Craft Canvases (12” x 30”)
Reeves Acrylic Paints (75ml) – Lemon Yellow, Cerulean Blue, Titanium White
Artograph Tracer Junior
Jasart Round Palette
Jasart Brush Bundle
Soft Pastel Pencil - light colour

Step One Find a photo of cherry blossoms in a magazine or on the internet and use a Artograph Tracer to project that photo onto the canvas. Use a light coloured soft pastel and outline the projection of the photo onto your canvas.

Step Two Repeat step one for the second canvas.

Step Three Mix a turquoise paint colour by combining equal quantities of Lemon Yellow, Cerulean Blue and Titanium White paints. Paint the background using this colour. Wait until dry. 

Step Four Paint the cherry blossoms Titanium White.

Step Five Leave to dry fully before hanging.
