1 Colour and 1 Brush: How to line paint

Hi Everyone! Today I will be teaching you guys about line paintings 🙂

Line paintings are the best if you love something minimalistic or want to create something simple. These types of paintings are definitely a fan favourite when my friends ask me to paint them something and I love painting it for them.

Although I want to say that line paintings are easy, they do take some time to paint because you need to get your hand super steady and make sure your lines are even in thickness. But in the end, it is all worth it, trust me and trust the process!

Supplies Needed

  • A canvas of your choice
  • A thin paintbrush for crisp lines
  • White Paint (or whatever colour your canvas is or will be)
  • Black paint (or whatever paint colour you would like your line to be)
  • Water Cup with water inside
  • Paper Towel
  • Optional: Picture from online you want to draw

If you aren’t too comfortable with drawing or want to take inspiration from elsewhere, you can trace a picture onto your canvas. Check out a blog post I wrote on how to do this here.

With that being said, a pencil sketch isn’t necessary. If you are confident with your stroke or want to let the paint brush take control, go for it! But if you do mistakes, don’t worry. You can simply cover up any mistakes with a swipe of white paint or whatever colour your canvas is.

Heres an example of one that I painted for a friend of mine.

Thats all for today, I hope you enjoyed!
