I am sharing my art gallery with acrylic paints today And a few tips on how I shaded the roses
Colors are so happy and full of life I love to have them around me when I am crafting or thinking of an idea
Now you can not have all the colors through out your house And it’s so hard to choose a color scheme even, sometimes!
That’s when I love my craft’s room Because it can be neutral or sober yet be crazy or rainbow as it’s my creative space
And I like it to define me
I love to paint with acrylic paints And these are the first of many I painted
I was so pleased with how they look on the wall, I wanted to share them with you all

Acrylic Painting Tips and Instructions
The first and most important thing before starting to paint is that you should be really wanting to do it
And feel happy about it
ROSES: To add those awesome shades in the roses, I used 4 shades of Red
(The canvas I used was primed already)
Red- For the outline and last finishes if required
Red+ a dab of white- For shading petals near the outline
Red+ 2 dabs of white- For shading the petals far from the bud
White+ dab of red- For shading the petals near the bud
The above is what I had intended to follow
But as you start painting you kind of make your own choices (or which colors to mix)
Use the brush size “0″ for all the flowers you wish to shade
Dip the brush in water and make the paint thin enough to make thin strokes but not watery else it will not give good results
Beginner’s tip: It will help if you use a picture of a shaded embroidery rose and follow it to paint yours
Keep the tip of the brush as sharp as possible (roll the brush in paint to make the tip)
Move the brush as if you’re shaking, touching the base to make shaded lines If the shaded lines are not fine, try thinning the paint a little more However, for beginners it will be great to paint fine straight lines first Once you practice painting fine lines, you will automatically get the instinct to shade finely
Finally just have fun and don’t think about perfection And you will get the desired awesome look
Shading with acrylic paints
For the flowers I used 2 shades and went with random strokes
Using the same brush, not wiping the paint of entirely, liquefying and mixing paints
Doing all at once with the same brush So when it was dry the shades were formed naturally
Nothing can bring the artist out of you like listening to the music
Listen to what delights your heart and see the magic in your painting
I am so happy I made these
Colors, colors everywhere
What do you think?
I’m not a professional artist (needless to say, my paintings speak for themselves)
The tips and instructions are what I have learnt painting since childhood I just love how the colors look together
So do you have any tips and ideas of your own that can help improve painting with acrylic paints?
I would love to learn something from you!
