Use pieces of tape or sticky notes and stick them in any section that you may feel could confuse you when figuring out which color goes where! Number them by section – bringing back the childhood days when you’d color according to numbers!
Begin painting! Start at the top with your lightest color. I traced the pencil line first with the thin brush so that it creates a border for you to fill in the rest. Paint, paint, paint! Let it dry for 10-15 minutes before starting each layer to avoid smudging.
4. Create your shades - mix the colors
Take the cup and dip it in the dark paint filling it ¾ full. Pour it into the light gallon paint and mix away. Once fully mixed, decide if you want to add another ½ cup, but no more than that! (the paint usually dries darker than it looks!)
5. Paint, paint, paint
Outline the section below it, making sure to pay attention to the numbers so that you paint the correct section with the right shade! Continue to fill in that section.
Repeat steps 4-5 until you have your finished mountain mural!
