Painting Hearts & Stars

This lesson helps enhance the atmosphere with stars on a dark background
and shows how to paint a bright or light object so it stands out against a dark background

4th spread

In this lesson demonstration I use a Gelly Roll White Pen and 2 Metallic FaberCastell Pitt Pens, but I’ve listed a number of options so don’t feel tied to what I’m using in the videos.

  • Journal Pages of watercolor paper to doodle and write on
  • Small round paintbrush that comes to a good point
  • Medium round paintbrush that comes to a good point
  • Titanium White Fluid Acrylic Paint or other light color
  • Bright paint for heart or bright object (I use Naphthol Red Light for the Heart)
  • Drawing Pens – I use FaberCastell Pitt Pens size S and F in this lesson
  • Small piece of ordinary chalk or charcoal
  • Rubbing alcohol (optional) for removing acrylic paint or pen
  • Water Container and Water
  • Palette
  • Paper Towels
