Watercolour Silhouette Pictures

We’ve been working on some water colouring skills, especially with blending colours. To practise we have been making some watercolour silhouette pictures.

Make sure that you follow my painting board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own watercolour silhouette pictures you will need:

  • Watercolour paper
  • Picture print outs
  • Pencil
  • Paint brush
  • Water
  • Watercolour paints

We found some pictures online of animals to print out and then cut them out. Next draw around the outline of your pictures. It you are really good at drawing you could always draw you picture free hand.

Cover the background area with water.

Load your brush up with paint and start to spread it onto the wet areas. The paint should start to spread around the wet area of the paper. Use your paint brush to help blend the different colours together to create your desired affect. Adding water to an area can also help to blend colours together if the paper has become too dry.

We made some really lovely pictures to put up in the playroom, even BB had a go at making a watercolour silhouette pictures.

If you enjoyed making these watercolour silhouette pictures be sure to check out my tape art and process art foil painting.
