  7. Black


  • I painted on a 4×5 inches acrylic paper.
  • Cut this Canson acrylic paper into 6 equal pieces and you’ll get the size I used.

Acrylic Brushes:

  • I used a size 4 flat brush from this flat brush set which is perfect for this canvas size. If you are painting bigger, then switch to a size that is proportionate with your painting surface.
  • Size 4 liner brush from my favorite miniature brush set
