So i’m slightly obsessed with Flamingos right now and my daughter seems to be baring the brunt of this obsession! I’ve decided to paint a flamingo picture for her bedroom to hang above her dresser. This is a mega simple and pretty quick DIY artwork tutorial that could easily be done in a couple of hours.
I purchased a box canvas from The Works for around £7 and am using some leftover tester pots from the cupboard – so literally, a bespoke piece of artwork for under £10!
Then i started with the darker of the two pink colours ‘Wilkos Cupcake’.
I filled in the lighter pink colour ‘Wilkos Candy Cane’ on the wing and the black beak.
Then finished off by giving the background a coat of white for a fresh crisp finish and also to cover the last of the pencil marks. In hindsight I would had tried to erase some of the unwanted pencil marks before I started painting as these were surprisingly hard to cover up with the white paint. It wasn’t the end of the world, it just meant a couple more coats of white paint than I had anticipated. Anyway, very pleased with the result, what do you guys think…….
