After drawing the illustrations, I edited them using Adobe Photoshop to create the fun characters displayed on this page.
PAINT with MAE : Session 1
Hi and welcome to Paint with MAE. I'm Melissa Mae and pleased as punch you are joining me for a little creative jam session with paint. This is all about have fun & hopefully creating something cool, so don't sweat the small stuff. If your master piece doesn't look like mine - great. I'm glad you made it your own. If it turned out to be a disaster, consider it to be a fun learning lesson, and hey, disasters can look cool too. OK, so we are going to be painting a color wheel (aka: rainbow) silhouette of what ever you like. My sample is a cat (like cats) and I think I will be painting a guitar silhouette because I like music. Think about what you want to paint and maybe have a stencil ready or if you have kiddos, maybe draw the shape first. It can be a cat, dog, heart, star, car... the skies the limit. If you just like your rainbow, sweet, leave it at that. Supplies you need: -Acrylic Paint (craft paint, poster paint....crayons, colored pencils) -Colors: Red, Yellow, Blue, White (Black, Green, Orange, Purple) -Canvas/ Paper (Something to paint on - preferably white colored) -Paint brushes (sponges, fingers, toes, will also work) -Cup of Water -Plate for paint pallet -Apron (trash bag, old t-shirt, will do) -Napkins -Something to protect the surface you're painting on
LIVE PAINTING - Painting a Red Guitar in 3 Hours
I'm Melissa Mae Crawford and I'm creating a red guitar painting in 3 hours. I'm going to be offering "Live Painting". If you are looking for entertainment for your next event, party, wedding reception, concert, etc... having an artist create an original painting on the spot would be entertaining, enlightening, and a once in a lifetime experience. The original painting can then be raffled off, donated for charity, or kept as a memorable keepsake. I'm located in the Houston, Texas area, but will travel if the host provides for transportation / accommodations. You can see my artwork on my website www.craftymuses.com .
