All you need for these simple watercolor and Sharpie shamrocks is watercolors, a paint brush and a Sharpie.
We had ourselves quite a shamrock filled art day yesterday. Being the big bleeding tissue art fan that I am, I made some bleeding tissue paper painted shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day. My daughter began the project with me, but then chose a different direction. The end result is these easy and lovely watercolor and Sharpie shamrocks.
Just like with the bleeding tissue paper shamrocks, we cut a piece of watercolor paper into quarters. If you do not have watercolor paper, a thicker stock paper will work just fine. We drew a shamrock onto the middle of one of the pieces of paper and then drew a design either on the inside of the shamrock or around it.
See how my daughter made hers.
My daughter drew her shamrock onto one of the quarter pieces.
The background that she created around her shamrock ended up being a leprechaun door. I was impressed that she came up with this. Her door was so cute.
After she drew her shamrock design, she painted her picture in with watercolors. It was as simple as that.
Her shamrock door looked even more adorable all painted in. I love how these came out.
