Simba 11 x 14 Inch Acrylic Kids Art

Today, Kaeleigh wanted to paint Simba for her show and tell/talent show tomorrow.  She will be playing the drums and showing her Simba painting.  She painted Simba for her friend, Elise.  I found a really nice tutorial here:  http://www.easydrawingtutorials.com/index.php/disney/88-draw-simba.  First, we used watercolor pencil to draw Simba on our respective canvas following the instructions in the tutorial.  Kaeleigh was a little worried because of all the extra marks, but she was excited to see that those extra sketch marks could be removed with water.  I think she liked her new little trick.  Then, we painted him with acrylic paints, finishing up with a thin glaze of yellow over the entire painting.  She did a really nice job.  Her friend is gonna love it!

Update:  Green Dragon 11 x 14 Inch Acrylic Painting

Getting ready to paint with kids tomorrow.  The request this week was for a raven with wings of fire or a dragon.  These kids have tall orders!  Since I have painted a dragon before, I thought I would stick with something I didn’t have to learn from scratch.  Like wings of fire.  My go-to site for kids dragon art is Darkonator.  If you need a cute dragon step by step, I love Darkonator.  I went ahead and traced a dragon and then used that as my template to trace onto canvas.  I did the dragon outlines in black acrylic paint for the kids beforehand so they could get right to painting from the start.  I hope we finish!  https://drawinghub.com/tut/how-to-draw-an-easy-cartoon-dragon-21055

Update:   Here are the paintings from today.  Rylan is visiting and won’t be able to work more on his dragon with me, but he says he is finished and likes the white with the blue.  Kaeleigh will finish hers next week.  She will add her black outlines back and work on smoke coming out his nose!   We also need to finish his eye.  I think both Kaeleigh and Rylan did a great job and I can’t wait to see what Kaeleigh’s looks like when she is finished.

Ender Dragons 11 x 14 Inch Acrylic Paintings

Thanks to Darkonator https://drawinghub.com/tut/how-to-draw-ender-dragon-19583 , I was able to learn how to draw an ender dragon from Mine Craft.  I painted her twice yesterday and once today.  The reason was because I had my first teaching lesson today with an 8 year old named Kaeleigh.  She wanted to paint the ender dragon.  I was told the ender dragon is a “she” because she does something with eggs, and girls lay eggs.  For the life of me I can’t remember exactly where eggs come into play and what she does with them, but they do and that is what matters.  We had lots of fun.  I learned much about video games and Taylor Swift.  This week was a gauge to kinda see where we are.  Next week we will start something more traditional like fun spheres and fun boxes.

This is an 11 x 14 inch floral oil painting in the complementary colors of red and green. I really like watching the colors change during the day as different light hits the painting.
