How To Paint Like Pablo A New Painting Concept
Recently when I attended the Heirloom Traditions deminar they introduced this new painting concept called Paint Like Pablo. It let’s anyone become an artist. You’ll be surprised to hear this but, I’ve never created a painting. Although I’ve always wanted to try it, but held back because of my lack of confidence. When Heirloom Traditions paint came out with this concept I was all over it!
You will receive your paint like Pablo canvas printed in the photo you chose. But it will be very light. As shown in my photo above. Along with your printed canvas, you will also receive a paint kit with acrylic paints and a brush to use on your project. You can use these paints anyway that you wish. Mix the colors and make this piece your own. I choose this rose canvas for my first painting, what a surprise huh?
Then you paint your canvas using colors you see in the canvas. So instead of numbers, just look at the colors and paint your canvas. I guess it’s sort of like coloring, but your using paints.
Oh, this paint like Pablo kit also comes with a frame, or you can use your own. I decided to use my own frame because the frame that came with the kit is a little small and cut out most of the painting. I already had a wood frame I found at a thrift store. I stretched the canvas and stapled it to the back of my frame. This was very easy to do. Then I painted my frame after the canvas was in the frame. I would NOT suggest doing it this way. I should have painted it first, but I changed my mind about the color of the frame once the painting was done.
Here’s my advice on painting a paint like Pablo, have a glass of wine handy so you can take a few sips as your painting. Okay, I hear you laughing. Well, wine will relax you as your painting. I’ll admit I didn’t have a glass of wine, but next time I will 😉
This was a very simple project to do and would be so much fun to do with a group of friends! How about a wine and painting party? And hey you don’t need wine to paint, just make it a fun girls night and have fun painting. I guarantee you will have so much fun with these paint like Pablo kits! And they would make a great gift for someone special!
So, what do you think of my first painting? I shared this on my Instagram page and someone was asking to purchase it. I have to admit I was shocked! Well you know how it is, we are always critical of our own work.
