Take paint of each kind and have it ready on the palette
1
Pick up a flat brush. Dip it generously in water
2
Mix your paints well on the palette. If you feel you need more water, take it and mix again
3
Start with horizontal strokes to your canvas. Keep the strokes to the first 1/3 of the canvas
4
Take more paint. Take more water. Mix and keep working on it till satisfied
5
Keep working on the top of the sky till you find a consistency which works for you
6
Wash your flat brush or get a new one to work with Red color. As usual, dip it in water, generously
7
Start merging red with purple. Let strikes bleed into each other
8
Remember to mix your paints well and keep working on the red
9
Once red is done till 2/3 of the canvas, start with yellow. Don’t be afraid of colours bleeding in
10
Keep working on yellow till the whole canvas starts giving the feel of evening sky gradient
11
Bleed occasional streaks of colours all over the canvas as you please
12
This is how it looks after all the previous steps. It’s time to add Black to the painting now
13
Take black paint and using a flat or round brush, draw a rough line to mark the ground
14
This line is our divide between the sky and the earth. Start working up black in the area below
15
Black can get semi transparent depending on how much water you have in brush
16
Take a round brush, take black paint, and draw a straight line for the cactus
17
Add the hands to the cacti
