Stitches The Scarecrow
Here’s what we are painting. Cute, isn’t he!
1
Start by painting a 2” horizontal sky and while wet dab on areas white to resemble clouds.
2
Alter green and yellow-green paint and paint the landscape almost to the bottom of the canvas.
3
Mix white, yellow and a touch of red to paint the flesh tone for a face.
4
With a lighter shade of blue, add body and arms. This may take a few layers to cover.
5
Add darker blue for both forearms that overlap the upper arms and body.
6
Add a blue pocket, then sketch and fill in a straw colored hat.
7
Paint the remaining areas green that are still white.
8
Add (6) pumpkins 🎃 one large and smaller as they move up the painting.
9
Paint a candy corn nose. Then, use black paint to add eyes, mouth and black sleeves.
10
Add texture lines to the entire hat. Then, straw to the top of the hat & sleeves of the scarecrow.
11
Painting brown stems on the pumpkins comes next!
12
Add plaid to the body and sleeves of the shirt by criss-crossing lines.
13
Add the whites of the eyes and buttons on the sleeves. Highlight with white any areas if needed.
14
Finish a fresh coat of white for the clouds.
15
Final details include brown hair and any areas you care to tweek! Sign & Enjoy your painting
