- 24" x 18" stretched canvas
- seven disposable plates
- Red Tempera paint
- White Tempera paint
- mixing stick
- 1" polyester paintbrush
Use a pencil and a ruler to draw a 2-inch border around the canvas so the painting will be centered. The pencil lines along the edges will guide your first brushstrokes.
Pour red paint onto a plate; this will be your starting color. Mix the red and white paints together in the remaining plates so you have six more shades, from dark to light.
Starting with the darkest paint, make a single brushstroke from top to bottom on each side of the canvas. Follow your pencil line for guidance. (Continue to next page for final step.)
