Get some inspiration for painting these wonderful flowers with this DIY tutorial right now!
Red poppies are amazing flowers, which attract us with beauty and simplicity. I believe it’s possible to admire the view of fascinating poppy field forever, somewhere in the South of France. 😍 Probably, poppy is the most popular flower in the art. Vincent van Gogh had created seven different paintings featuring poppy flowers between the years 1886 and 1890. Though, poppies typically bloom in May and June, we can get some inspiration for painting these wonderful flowers with this DIY tutorial right now.
It’s important to add that red is not the only typical color for poppies. Yellow, rose and even blue poppies are well known. Here, in this DIY, you will find a classic red poppy painting, but you can also try to draw a different one.
If you imagine a poppies painting, you will associate them with a vase they are in. This DIY tutorial is not an exception, so we’ll take a porcelain vase as the base for our painting.⚱️Quick advice, it is much easier to paint something on a plain surface, so it’s not the-must to buy a fancy shaped vase if you do this for the first time.
1. LOOK WHAT YOU NEED FOR A PENCIL SKETCH
– White porcelain vase.
– Sketch book or paper.
– Simple pencils.
First off, let’s make a sketch! Try to define a size of your painting area, it depends on the vase size. It’s much easier to “transfer” your drawing from a sketch to a vase, if the sketch and original painting are the same size.
2. WHAT YOU NEED FOR A PAINTING SKETCH
– Acrylic paints. (White, Crimson, Red Medium, Light Yellow, Black, Deep Green colors).
– Gold porcelain liner.
– Palette for color mixing. 🎨
Turn on your imagination and make a test painting by adding color to the sketch! Pay attention to how you choose paint and brushes. 🖌️Maybe you will need more colors or different brushes, it’s really up to you.
This drawing looks perfect now, and we can move on to painting poppies on the vase. You should use a simple soft pencil again, to redraw an outline on the vase. Don’t worry, you can always erase some spare lines when painting is ready. Also, you don’t necessary have to draw it all in details, because you already have a sketch in your sketch book as a sample.
Finally, when all preparation works are done, we can get to the most interesting part of DIY – poppies coloration. Here you should keep in mind, that acrylic layers have fewer density on porcelain than on paper. Give the layer a time to dry up, before you put the next one. Finish the painting by adding some gold lines to your poppies – just use a porcelain liner.
Well, the painting is ready, and these poppies look awesome on the vase now! ❤️ I’m pretty sure this vase will become a good gift or a decoration for your home interior.
