Sakura flowers blushing about in the cold wind of the night, with the backdrop of a full moon is as ‘anime’ as you can get when it comes to painting! Sakura or cherry blossoms symbolize life, death, and rebirth because they bloom only for a short amount of time during the year.
Here is a DIY cherry blossom painting idea from the world of anime that you can make by painting with oil pastels.
What you will need:
- Smooth paper
- Camel Oil Pastels
- Tissue paper
- Camel Drawing Pencil
- Paper tape
- Masking tape
- Camlin Correction Pen
Take the masking tape and a smooth paper for step one. Stick the tape on the paper as shown below.
Stick three thin tapes across the paper as shown in the picture below.
Next, you will be painting the background of the painting within each of the four sections using a pair of two crayons each. Start using two shades of green, followed by blue, pink, and yellow.
Using fresh tissue paper for each section, blend the two colours in each of the four sections.
Using a graphite pencil, sketch the tree trunk and branches.
Once you are done sketching the tree, paint the flowers using a white correction pen.
Next, paint the stars in the form of dots using the white correction pen.
Using the drawing pencil, draw the branches. Next, use the white crayon to paint the full moon in the blue section.
Now, take the tape off carefully.
Using a scale and a pencil, outline the alternate edge of every section and sketch some shadows around the edges.
Once you are done adding the shadow effect, your painting is ready.
