Painting exotic birds (Workshop for Children)

Today we painted some funky exotic birds using watercolours and white acrylic paint.

First we painted a random labyrinth of swirls and then we filled the empty spaces on the paper with other colours. When it all dried a bit, we added little dots and other marks with almost dry brush and lots of paint.
While the painting has been drying completely, we drew our crazy birds using some pictures (cards with birds) for inspirations but we added some crazy crowns and longer tales, so they looked cool as silhouettes. Then we cut the birdies out and stuck them (with removable double-sided stickers) to the painting and carefully painted over with white acrylic. The brush strokes always need to go AWAY from the bird, so the paint doesn't get under the stencil. Have fun making yours! Get in touch if you have any questions.
