Grid Practice

I've been working on deliberate practice even more this last week:

I started out with the red one and randomly painted in squares until they were all filled in, much like the forest animals in the last post. With the gold and teal pieces, though, I wanted an ombre effect, so I painted more methodically, in a specific order and pattern. I think the second method worked better because then I knew for sure that the adjacent paint wasn't going to be wet and bleed.


  1. Did you outline your grid with the paint before you painted each square? Just curious. :) Love these.

    1. Nope, the lines you see around each box are overlapping layers of paint.
