Below is another full episode of the show “Karrie on Canvas” starring artist Karrie Evenson. I am a big fan of this show. I love Karries carefree and colorful approach to painting. Sometimes it is nice to just let go and paint something without much thought or careful planning, especially after a hard day. It is extremely relaxing and therapeutic.
In this episode, Karrie will demonstrate how she paints one of her abstract paintings, specifically of a cat.
Here is what you will need to complete your painting:
- Medium Size Canvas
- Medium to Large Paint Brushes
- Assorted Acrylic Paint
- Paper Towels or Rags
- Water for Cleaning Brushes
Here is how Karrie approached this painting. She first created an abstract drawing on a separate piece of paper using a technique known as a “continuous line drawing”. This is where you create the entire sketch using one continuous line. She then copies her sketch onto her canvas using charcoal. She then sprays it with a fixative so that the drawing will not smear. She then tones the canvas. After that is all complete, she begins her painting. Watch the video episode below to see the finished product! Enjoy this acrylic painting demo!
