Ready to make Patrick the ‘Star’ in your next masterpiece? Let’s watch the one-minute video below!
- Prepare your materials. Place your acrylic paints directly on the canvas in a diagonal pattern from one side to another.
- Once you’ve dotted your colors, blend them with your paint brush until they form a mélange of pastel colors as the background.
- Bring out your adhesive tape and tape a column, also in a diagonal direction, over the center part of the background colors. Leave about an inch of background on both sides.
- Apply more acrylic paint on both sides and blend in a horizontal pattern, covering the remaining spaces. It’s okay to paint over the tape because you’ll be removing it after anyway.
- Once you’re done painting, gently pull off the tape, revealing the background you painted underneath.
- With a light-colored marker, start drawing Patrick Star’s outline. Then color within using a blend of pink and a bit of white acrylics.
- Trace Patrick’s outline with a silver chalk marker to make the colors pop. Finish Patrick’s image by adding details.
There you have it! An amazing painting of Patrick in all his ‘Star’ quality!
