Tinted Hand Painting

Tinted+Hand+PaintingI am on a quest to find simple layering techniques for my afterschool art journal class. Many detailed adult journals that I’ve admired have had as many as 5 or 6, but with students as young as kinder, I’ve found that having them start with just two layers is a good start.

1. This is intended as a title page for a new art journal session. I first traced my hand in pencil, and wrote the words inside.
2. I again used my favorite new watercolor paints, the Crayola Watercolor Mixing Set that I can only seem to find online. Love the violet and cyan that it includes. I painted the entire page with just some simple free-form blotches of color.
3. I took some white acrylic paint and watered it down, making it about the consistency of milk and painted all around my hand, trying not to work the paper too much. The watercolor will start to mix with the white if you brush it too much.
4. When the paint was dry, I used a Sharpie to trace my hand and words so they would still read.
