STEPS

background

Start with painting your canvas with multiple colors using runny acrylics paint and a big brush.

While it's wet - apply a piece (or multiple pieces) of a plastic wrap, you can "dab" some areas with crumbled plastic, paper towel, or a rag.

Let it dry , then remove the plastic.

Look at the shapes that were created by the plastic. See if you can find any creatures there. They don't have to be realistic!

Outline what you see with a Sharpie.

The creatures can be really weird....

Look for more.....

Take one creature at a time and paint in the details. For the most part you don't have to invent anything - just enhance what you see and what your creature already looks like. Add highlights and shadows around the outline of the shape. You don't have to paint in the middle of the shape because the creature already has an interesting texture and details.

Add some details for the surroundings... Have fun!!!!
