A while ago I joined paint nite to create the Frozen Forest II at the Essex Restaurant. I will discuss five steps to improve your painting and give a coupon at the end! In other words, we will start with dinner because it’s not right to paint on an empty stomach. Then we will talk about the real painting experience. For example, what I learned from the event and the dirty truth… Finally, I’ll go through the steps the steps the instructor taught us. Then I will wrap up with some suggestions. Thus, you can use these hacks to elevate your skills on the canvas!
If you’re here for the Paint Nite coupon: It’s Barnard. 🙂
5 Hacks to Elevate Your Skills During Paint Nite! 😍
Paint Nite Story
We are Paint Nite NYC. We paint in EVERY borough; from Times Square in Manhattan to Far Rockaway in Queens. Our goal is to add creativity to every New York City skyline at a venue near you.
Paint Nite is invading bars and restaurants near you with everything you need to create a one-of-a-kind painting. We’ll guide you and your friends through two lively hours of creativity, drinking, and laughing ‘til your cheeks hurt. The best part? You don’t have to be an artist to have an amazing time.
What about Dinner? 🍗
I was coming from work. For example, we had to squeeze in dinner and then start painting around 7 pm. Be that as it may, I ordered ESSEX FAMOUS POTATO PANCAKES and PAN SEARED ATLANTIC SALMON. Different from the main dish, FREE-RANGE ORGANIC CHICKEN BREAST. I decided to go with the latter. As a matter a fact, my friend ordered the food 20 mins before my arrival. In effect, we could eat and have enough time transition to painting.
Let’s Paint 🎨
All nerves and worrying aside, I knew I had to paint. Also, my goal was to learn something new. In the same fashion, we moved up to the second floor. Above, it was a small room with all the paint supplies you need to get started. For example, we had five colors, blue, red, white, black and yellow. Such as three brushes, small round brush, medium and large flat brush. Including, a green water bucket. In fact, we all had a mini metal easel. If your interested in getting an easel? Take a look at the U.S. Art Supply Coronado French Style Easel. Also, its portable and easy to use because it folds into a box.
What We Learned that Night 🎓
The artist is Bernard Garcia. In like manner, a talented artist who can study and break down a painting. Then show us how to paint it. In other words, He started us off by warming up our brushes and hand strokes.
For example, we used water to wet the canvas then used white color. Again, he had us paint the background Yet, we planned to paint the foreground towards the end. In other words, we started painting 1/3 of the canvas in red (top), then 1/3 of the bottom in purple.
The Dirty Truth 💩
As the Paint Nite drove closer to the by warming up our brushes and hand strokes. For example, we used water to wet the canvas then used white color. Again, he had us paint the wee hours I had realized that I couldn’t keep up with all the directions. For example, I had a hard time grasping how he broke down the painting. In other words, I realized that I was trying to follow his steps, but realized I could not. In the light of his technique, I can’t repeat all the steps because I don’t understand them well enough. Also, I found myself trying to turn my neck towards him, trying to make out what the next step would be. Of course, I was in a wrong place and his back blocked my view.
The Steps I Remember 🐾
We painted larger objects first, then worked on the detail later. For example, we painted large black trees, then added tree branches. To put in another way, I recall adding some blue and white color to the snow. In this case, snow on the ground was a wavy bluish white color. Yet, I avoided adding to much white because we planned to use it for highlights. Without delay, we added small trees in black for the background. After we created the main tree, they were in the shape of a triangle. As an illustration, they had an arrow on the top and a tree bark. Another key point, we painted an S stretched out shape while getting bigger as we went down to the base of the tree. Later, we added snowflakes with the back of our brush. Finally, we signed our names and took pictures.
That’s It 🏁
