As it’s National Creativity Day on Wednesday 30th May, I thought it would be appropriate to experiment with some more Reeves products and share with you my creations! I have previously done Reeves Paint By Numbers and Reeves Colour By Numbers so I guess it is about time I did something creative without numbers. It’s been years since I used acrylic paints (I think the last time must have been during art classes at school) so I was a little nervous with this one… but Reeves believe creativity isn’t about right or wrong, it is all about expression. And having fun is the main thing, right?!
I wanted to keep it simple and not mix the paints just yet so thought that Rainbow Rain is the perfect place to start. If you fancy getting creative, why not give this a go yourself over the Bank Holiday Weekend and share your pictures on social media using #WeAreReeves #ShowYourColours & #NationalCreativityDay.
All you need is a canvas, a box of acrylic paints and a black marker pen!
I printed out a silhouette of a girl holding an umbrella, there are tons of images on Google if you type in “silhouette umbrella”, but if you are confident at freestylin’ go for it.
I went around the outline in a thicker black pen. Tip: secure the silhouette to the canvas with blu tack whilst drawing around.
Colour in the girl with your marker pen.
Once your girl is ready, it’s time to get the coloured paints out.
There are plenty to choose from in the box. I selected six rainbow colours (red, orange, yellows, blue and green).
Simply draw colourful rain vertically down the canvas squeezing your chosen paints straight from the tube.
I kept my colours in order, but you can be as creative as you like. Why not give it a try with these awesome florescent colours!
Ta-da! That’s it! Leave your canvas to dry and the Rainbow Rain picture is complete and ready to hang on your wall.
