you rock dad! canvastest

Create a fun and colourful painting for the dad who likes to Rock 'n Roll!
Step 1

Draw the guitar shape onto the right half of the canvas.

Step 2

Paint the guitar light brown. You can add dark and light shades of the colour (add white to lighten and black to darken) to the guitar to create interest.

Step 3

Paint the background around the guitar medium blue. You can add white to lighten the blue or black/darker blue to darken. Add additional shading to the background while the paint is still wet to blend the colours.

Step 4

Finish the guitar by adding details, such as the hole in the centre and the strings. Add white dots along the edge of the guitar by dipping the end of the paintbrush into white paint and pressing it onto the canvas.

Step 5

Write the message "You Rock Dad" on the canvas with white paint. When the paint is dry, you can outline the letters with the black paint pen.
