I don't think I've ever met someone who doesn't love a bright luminescent moon painting! Making your moon look bright and luminous isn't as hard as it may at first seem! Follow these instructions to create a beautiful Pinot's Palette Masterpiece!
First things first, have you poured yourself a glass of wine?? No?? Well, let's pause for a second while you complete the most important step of a wine and palette painting!
• One medium flat brush and one small round brush
• White, yellow and brown acrylic paint
• An extra paper plate to trace
The first painting step will be to paint a dark background on to your canvas for your night sky. You'll want to be sure to let this background dry completely; any wet paint can blend in with you moon causing it to be less luminous.
Once that background is good and dry then you'll mix white paint with just a little bit of our yellow, this will make a pale yellow color. Situate your paper plate on your canvas in a position that you are happy with and then using your pale yellow color mix trace your plate, this will give you a nearly-perfect circle!
Using your flat brush, you'll go ahead and fill in the whole moon with your pale yellow, don't worry about keeping your brush strokes going in the same direction, you want to see that texture to help give your moon a more realistic feel!
Still using your flat brush pick up small amounts of brown paint (while your pale yellow is still wet) and blend this into your moon. This step makes you moon even more realistic by creating the shadows of our moon's craters!
