1) Gather your supplies.Here's how it works. First, you need to gather some supplies. I've created a SUPPLIES page with links to items at Michaels that you will need to complete the paintings. Feel free to substitute any supplies with ones you already have. Also feel free to change any colors or color schemes by purchacing additional colors of paint. Some of the items you only need to purchace once such as an easel or paint brushes. Other supplies you will need to replace depending on how many paintings you create. You can follow my painting tutorials as closely or as loosly as you'd like. In the end it is YOUR painting and it should look exactly the way you want it to. Creativity is encouraged and having fun is guaranteed!
