How to paint a perfect white Christmas!
You will need:
|Start by roughly sketching a wintry scene onto blue paper.|
|Mix up some watered-down white paint...|
...and begin by painting the snow that's settled on the ground.
Don't worry if some of the paper shows through - it'll add to the final effect!
|Make the snow lighter in the foreground and darker in the distance.|
|Next, paint in picture details, like a fence...|
|...trees, a wall and a log cabin in the distance.|
|Now mix up some thick white paint and dab fresh snow where it would settle.|
|Don't forget to add a snowman!|
|Dab the paint on nice and thick on the trees...|
|...the tops of the fences...|
|...and the roof of the log cabin!|
|Now mix up some pale blue paint to help the fresh snow look nice and fluffy.|
|You can also use the pale blue paint to add some shading to the snowman.|
|Why not add in some footprints, too?|
|Finish off by dipping an old toothbrush into the runny white paint...|
...and flick onto the picture to create the effect of falling snow!
