Is this your first foray into the world of paint and sip Gold Coast event? If that is the case, welcome! At the very least, you’re going to have a great time. However, you never know what could happen during your first paint and sip session… amazing things happen when imagination is allowed to run wild!

We understand how intimidating it may be to learn something completely new. We’ve been painting with visitors in Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne for a while now, and we understand that the concept of artistic expression might feel completely foreign to novice painters. The wonderful thing is that you are not alone. We’ll have an artist on hand to teach you step by step through your selected painting, and you’ll be surrounded by other artists who are all in the same boat. Additionally, you are permitted to bring wine.

To help you ease into your first paint and sip Gold Coast experience, we’ve compiled a list of our top six practical painting suggestions to keep in mind prior to your visit. They’re minor details, but they may make a significant impact in your paint and sip Gold Coast experience.

You’re enthusiastic about getting started with acrylic painting. You’ve stocked up on all necessary goods. You’ve set up your easel and are now prepared to paint. However, what in the world should you paint? We’ve compiled a list of simple acrylic painting ideas to help you get started!

Choosing a topic may be challenging, even more so for beginner acrylic painters wanting to develop their abilities. This post is dedicated to providing simple painting ideas that are motivating but not discouraging. Click here to read about 7 Art classes that allow you to paint and sip in Gold Coast.

While not all of the paintings below were created by novices, all of the techniques discussed are applicable for both new and experienced artists.

Take out your paints and try one of these simple painting ideas!

1. Flowers 

Flowers are an excellent topic for the beginning acrylic painter. For one thing, they are a forgiving subject matter – it’s very easy to “understand” that a painted object is a flower, even if it isn’t entirely accurate.

Additionally, painting flowers might assist you in developing as a painter. Perhaps you’ll begin by drawing simple flower forms; from there, you can experiment with colour changes and generating faceted colours in your blooms. Without realizing it, you might be making stunning, realistic flower paintings.

2. Figures in silhouette

Silhouettes, particularly those inspired by nature, may be a stimulating method to hone your acrylic paint and sip Gold Coast abilities. The above artwork features a stunning colourful gradient as the backdrop, followed by a dark silhouette of a tree in the foreground.

While the agilely drawn painted tree features some pretty intricate forms and loops, a closer examination of the trunk reveals that all of those sophisticated designs originate from a single relatively simple shape.

3. Statues

While it may appear that still life paintings are better left to the 18th-century masters, this is a technique that is accessible to even novices – truly!

The Craftsy paint and sip Gold Coast course Acrylic Painting: Fundamentals and Beyond teaches you how to add details to create a recognized still life, such as the one seen above, by beginning with basic forms painted in a variety of colours. Believe it or not, Suzette Edwards’s above work was only her second effort at still life painting.

4. Three-dimensional Shapes

If addressing real things in a still life appears to be an impossible task, you might begin by painting shapes. This simple painting concept may serve as a springboard for more complicated still life compositions.

The painter investigated shape, tone, and depth in the above picture by employing a monochrome palette. This is an excellent method to begin learning the language of shape and form, as well as how to construct them using various color variations.

5. Ingenious lines

Isn’t this simple acrylic painting cool? The good news is that, despite its complexity, even novices may experiment with the techniques employed to produce this wonderful piece of art.

The secret is straightforward: painter’s tape! Apply the tape in a geometric pattern all over the canvas and then paint abstract bursts of color on top, as shown. Once the paint has dried, you may remove the tape; the portions covered by the tape will stay white, creating a stunning, contemporary effect.

6. Abstract

The most effective approach to improve in painting is to paint. Simple! That is true regardless of whether you are interested in realistic, painterly depictions of objects or in abstract, non-representational art.

Abstract art is a simple way to get started painting and have some fun. How do you accomplish this? You just experiment with paint on paper. Assume the persona of Jackson Pollock and hurl paint at the painting, if desired.

Abstract art is an excellent method to begin working with acrylics since it is a stress-free, experimental medium. Anything is permissible! Perhaps you start with a line of paint and spread it across the canvas with your finger or a dry brush to create an intriguing gradient. While your first attempt may not seem as polished as the lovely scene above, you will undoubtedly have fun.

Take-Away Bag

Adults will also appreciate receiving a small take-home bag at the conclusion of your paint and sip Gold Coast party. Bags can include the paint set they used to create their paintings, a tiny canvas for them to paint at home, and a colorful candy box.

That concludes our discussion, my friends! Now you know how to organize an extremely easy and inexpensive paint and sip Gold Coast event / do-it-yourself painting party. Nothing beats the joy of creating something unique to you. It has the ability to boost your self-esteem and reintroduce you to your creative side. Thus, it is advised that you visit a paint-and-sip workshop at least once in your lifetime to produce a one-of-a-kind work of art of your own design.

It is normal for us to become preoccupied with the painting process itself while we are attempting to concentrate on it entirely. Remind yourself to have a good time whenever you come across an opportunity. The activity of “sip and paint” is one in which we strive to place a greater emphasis on the experience of painting together rather than just the methods and supplies. If you are still unable to visualize what the session would be like, we encourage you to visit us and see our space for yourselves. It will be quite simple for you to get into the paint-party spirit that we have created.
