Alizarin Crimson
Navy Blue
True Blue
Wicker White
Burnt Umber
Licorice Black
Pure Orange
Berry Wine
Floating Medium


I re-used a canvas from a painting I started but did not like so I gessoed over it. To cover the old design completely I needed to coat the canvas with a dark background. In this case I used a double load of Navy and True Blue.

You could start this snowman acrylic painting with a white canvas.

Want to see my favorite painting supplies, just press here.

Paint the Glowing Moon

To paint the glowing moon, start with the 3/4″ flat brush and paint a circle with Wicker White.

Add Navy blue to the brush without rinsing out the white. Start an inch out from the white circle and stroke around and towards it.

If you find that hard to understand see the 6:00 mark of the video.

Don’t overwork it. Once you have worked into the moon then start working outward adding more Navy to your brush.

You will get white streaks without reloading white by using added pressure to the brush.

Take your moon all the way to the left edge. Let dry.

Transfer Snowman (couple) pattern

You can choose to sketch in your snow people or you can transfer the pattern.

Need more info on transferring patterns? See this post: How to Transfer painting patterns.

Under paint Snowman Couple

Using Wicker white or a light color of choice and the 3/4″ brush you may have on hand, undercoat the snow people.

White takes a couple coats to cover a dark surface well so the undercoat helps. I used a light pink that I had on hand but don’t use so it did the job for me.

Sponge paint the Snowman couple

Using a piece of sponge pounce in the snow people with Wicker White.

See this post on how I create these sponge pieces.

The sponge creates a fun texture to the paint. You could easily use a paint brush and stroke in the snow couple if you prefer.

Add shading

Without washing the sponge dip lightly into the Navy blue and blend it into the white around the edges you wish to create shading for dimension. For instance, where the one tummy overlaps the other.

On the pattern I have his tummy overlapping hers but either way works.

Paint Snowman heart buttons, eyes and mouth

Using Alizarin Crimson and the #12 flat brush paint on the heart buttons. Don’t worry about being perfect or symmetrical, just have fun with it!

The eyes are painted in ovals with Licorice and the #10 or #12 flat brush.

Using the tail end of the brush, dot on Licorice in a smile on their faces.

Use Berry Wine to shade one side of the heart buttons.

Dot black in smile and then shade heart buttons on snow couple

Add highlights to the opposite side of the hearts with Pure Orange in the same way.

Paint Carrot Nose

Use Pure Orange and the #12 flat brush to paint a triangular shape to mimic a carrot nose.

Let dry. The orange will not be opaque. We will add a second coat later to deepen the opacity.

Add eye details

Side load a touch of Wicker White to the #10 flat brush and stroke a touch of highlight along the left edge of the his eyes and the right of hers.

Place a dot of Wicker White in the eyes where it looks like they are looking towards each other.

Paint Snowman scarves

Using the 3/4″ flat brush, paint a band of color across the snow people’s necks. True Blue for the boy and Alizarin Crimson for the girl.

We will need to let these dry and we will come back to them after we do the ear muffs.

This is where you can really make this painting your own. Choose which colors you prefer for the scarves and ear muffs.

add band of color across neck for snowman scarf

Ear muffs

Using the 3/4 inch pouncer brush (it comes in the multi-pack linked) load with color and pounce ear muffs on in colors of choice.

I used Alizarin Crimson for him and True Blue for her.

Shade and highlight. Shade with the Navy blue and Highlight with white.

pounce red ear muffs on snowman and blue on snow lady in semi circles

Using the chisel edge of a flat brush and Wicker White pull a line between the ear muffs.

Draw white line between ear muffs over snow people heads

Now back to the scarves. With the #12 flat and Wicker White, stroke stripes onto his scarf with a slighlty curving flat stroke.

Next switch to the 3/4″ flat and load with True Blue. Side load a touch of Navy Blue.

Starting on the chisel edge of the brush right at where the scarf comes up under at the neck, slide the brush to the left then down with a slight curve.

To get a feel for what I am saying see video at the 1:10 mark.

Do the same on her scarf using Alizarin crimson and berry wine and slide to the right and down.

Add overlapping part of scarf and shadow beneath with transparent color

Create shadows beneath and alongside the scarves. His using Navy blue with Floating Medium and her using Berry Wine and floating medium.

Get Dotty

Using the tail end of the brush, dip into Wicker White and add polka dots to the snow lady’s scarf.

Add stripes and dots to scarves.

And don’t forget to add the stripes to his scarf too.

Now you have a sweet snow couple to display in your home or give as a gift. Here is a photo of a sign I made with just a snowman. I used a bucket for his hat.

Couples Painting – How To Paint A Landscape With Moon & Trees

This is a couples acrylic painting lesson for the absolute beginner painter!

You and your partner can paint the same painting of this landscape and have the paintings meet in the middle so that two paintings become one! 

Couples painting

Set up a date night with you and your other half. This tutorial is PERFECT for a DIY Paint Date AT HOME!

You can read more about how to set up a paint date night at  home in this guest post I wrote for Our Kind Of Crazy Blog.

It’s so easy to have this type of date night and all you need to do is go out and buy the supplies at your local craft store or on Amazon. 

I used two 11 x 14 canvases, five colors and two different size brushes. This tutorial is geared towards the absolute beginner painter which means neither you or your partner need to have any painting experience! 

Couples painting

I just love purple and turquoise together in any painting! I think they make a lovely sort of whimsical color combo.

Enjoy and happy painting!

You can also do this with budget friendly craft paint! Use: purple iris, black, white, Bimini blue, Tuscan teal & navy.

Color Palette

Couples painting


Using Apple Barrel Paints?

You can use budget friendly paints! Apple Barrel Craft paints are readily available at Walmart, Amazon and other craft stores.

I recommend the colors: navy, white, black, Tuscan teal, purple iris and Bimini blue. 



I only used two brushes in this painting (three if you count the old toothbrush for splatter stars). 

If your brush isn’t exactly a 3/4” flat or a #4 round, that’s okay! You can use similar size brushes and still do this painting. 

Directions At A Glance:



This tutorial does not need a traceable. Use painters tape to define your horizon line and a circle to trace the moon. Everything else can be done free handed. You CAN do this!!




Step By Step Directions:

1. Lay your canvases vertically then apply painters tape. 

These directions are the same for both of your paintings. The only thing you will do different is put your paintings together so the moon and reflection match up. 

Your line should be approximately 4” up. This line that you are blocking off will be our “horizon line”. 



2. Get Your Colors Ready!

There are only 5 colors in this painting! You’ll need: bright aqua green, phthalo blue, titanium white, mars black and dioxazine purple. 

Load your palette with only Phthalo Blue, Dioxazine Purple and Titanium White. If you’re using apple barrel, load it with navy, purple iris and white. 


3. Paint the very top of your sky phthalo blue (or Navy if you’re doing this with apple barrel)!

You will need your 3/4” wash brush. 

Start at the top of your canvas and paint about 3-4 inches down. When you paint, use left and right strokes using the FULL WIDTH of the brush. 

Apply a nice even layer leaving no white spots showing through from the canvas. 

You may also paint the sides of your canvas.

4. Blend Dioxazine Purple (or purple iris)

Do not rinse the blue off your brush. In this next step we will be doing “wet on wet blending”. That means we will blend the colors on the canvas. 

Apply the purple so it overlaps the blue slightly. Brush over the colors on the canvas until they start to blend together. 

The goal is to get the blue to blend to purple. This may take some time brushing over the colors until they blend. You may wish to load your brush in more blue to get it to blend more. 

Go pretty far down with the purple but leave about a 4” gap of white above the horizon line. 

5. Blend White All The Way To The Horizon

Wipe off the colors of your brush but don’t rinse. This will get excess blue and purple off. 

Load it into the white. 

Blend the white with the purple and go all the way to the horizon. The idea is to get the white to get lighter as you work your way down.

Your white will turn into a light purple. 

Keep adding more white to your brush and keep painting and blending until you get to the tape line. 

You may also paint the sides of your canvas! You can paint it all the same color or use the colors that match on the top of the canvas. 

6. Remove The Tape Line 

Gently remove the tape line.


7. Paint the water 

For the water, you’ll need bright aqua green and some fresh white on your palette. If you’re using Apple Barrel, use “Bimini blue”.

Completely rinse off the 3/4 wash brush until it’s nice and clean. 

With your 3/4” flat, start with titanium white. Using the tip of your brush, paint as close as possible to the horizon line. 

Then load your brush in the aqua color. Blend it down using wet on wet blending the same way you did the sky. 

Your aqua will start out very light but eventually turn to a more pure form of that aqua. 

Go almost all the way down but leave about a two inch gap at the bottom. 

Next blend phthalo blue with the aqua green at the bottom.

If you are using apple barrel, use “Tuscan teal” for this step instead of “phthalo blue”.

This color is a little harder to blend because its so dark in comparison to the aqua. Start out very slowly and blend upwards. 

Add more aqua to your brush if needed to help with the blending. You can also try mixing the phthalo and aqua on your palette and then apply it to the canvas. 

Your final result of the water should look like a very light aqua at the horizon line and blend to a darker teal looking color at the bottom. 

8. Paint The Stars

 For this step, you can either flick your flat brush or use an old toothbrush to splatter the stars. 

Practice somewhere off of your canvas first until you get the right consistency of white. If it isn’t splattering for you, try adding a very tiny bit of water to your brush. 


9. Paint Your Moon

This step requires you to place both of your canvases side by side to create your moon. 

First trace a circle with a pencil. I used my painters tape roll for this but you can find any circle that’s relatively 5-6” in diameter. You can even use a compass if you have one. 

Place this circle about three fingers above your horizon line. 

Trace with a pencil. 

Then use your 4 round brush and titanium white to paint the entire circle white. 

Next we will add color to the bottom area of the moon to make it look like it has shading/ craters. 

Load your brush in some purple without rinsing the white off the brush. Then make some strokes on the bottom of your moon so the purple blends with the white. 

Add some blue to the bottom are of the moon as well and blend. 

Paint little cross hatching “x” strokes so the bottom area of the moon is purple-blue. It will be a very similar color to this area of the sky. 

You can add some more white to the moon as well. Essentially the moon should be lightest at the top and have the blue and purple shading on the bottom. 

10. Paint shooting stars and heart constellations

To do a shooting star, use your round brush to paint a dot in the sky. Then wipe off the paint. 

Paint the trail. Because you wiped off your brush, you will get a “dry brush” stroke making it look like a trail of a shooting star. 

Then paint the heart constellations. Make little dots in the sky forming a heart shape. 

If you want, you can connect the heart shapes. 

11. Paint The Trees

To do the trees, use your 4 round brush and black.

Start at the top forming the top tip of the tree and stroke down. 

Stroke each tree branch down forming a triangular shape of this pine tree. 

Each tree is varied in heights and widths. Some of them start up higher in the sky and some lower. 

Then, optional, you can mix a gray on your canvas by blending black and white together. 

Painting gray trees makes it look like some of the trees are further away. 

Paint these trees all across your horizon line and make sure some of them overlap that moon. 

Then, if you look really closely, on the base of all the trees, there is a black line. Paint that line all across on the bottom of the trees. The represents the land so it doesn’t look like the trees are floating on water. 

12. Paint The Tree Reflections & Bottom Land Line

To do the reflections of the trees in the water, paint little black horizontal lines just under each of the trees. 

I only went a little bit down with these reflection lines. 

Then paint the land line with the black on the very bottom. Make sure your land line matches up in the middle. This area was really only a half inch high. 

13. Paint The Heart Reflection

Clear off your round brush and load it in just water. Use the watered brush to paint a heart that meets in the middle.

Then fill your heart with little white horizontal lines. 

These little white horizontal lines will form the heart reflection in the water. 

Next paint little white horizontal lines throughout your water. 

You can do other colors in your little water lines such as aqua or a little bit of purple. 



Hope you enjoyed this lovely painting!
