Learn How to Paint a Simple Snowman one stroke at a time in acrylics.
Do you want to build a snowman??? Or better yet, paint a snowman and he won’t ever melt.
This is a quick and simple little tutorial to paint up something fun. You can add these to most anything for a winter touch and though they do not have arms on this photo it is easy enough to add them.
Start with whatever you are going to paint on. (of course) Mine is a spare board I had started the simple daisy painting tutorial on (coming soon) and you may catch a glimpse or two of a daisy during the video. Oh yes, did I mention there is a video to accompany this??? It is attached at the end of this post.
(I don’t know why the sound is a bit scratchy, maybe I did not have the mic plugged in all the way, sorry about that)
I start with chalking out some circles to get my placement.
I load up a scruffy brush with white bottle acrylic paint and pounce in the largest circle first. (in the video I show how to do this with a regular flat brush also)
In the video I have you put a little grey on the edge of the scruffy brush but I did not like how it worked for me so I suggest here that you shadow after you have put down the white with the touch of grey.
Now tap in the middle of the snowman..
Now load a touch of grey on the side of your scruffy brush and tap along the bottom edges of your circles to create a bit of a shadow. This photo only shows the middle and head but you also want to tap on the bottom edge of your snowman.Now lets add some eyes and buttons. Just dip a liner brush into some black paint and tap on the dots..
If it where Spring I would give him little flower buttons..but oh well, another day.
Now he needs a bit of a carroty nose and some twig arms. Easy enough, just use your liner brush and draw them in.
And Voila’…you now know how to paint a snowman.
In the video I also paint the hats and the scarf so go ahead and give it a watch to see how to paint a snowman with a flat brush!
