Step 1

Use a pencil and a ruler to draw a 2-inch border around the canvas so the painting will be centered. The pencil lines along the edges will guide your first brushstrokes.

Step 2

Pour red paint onto a plate; this will be your starting color. Mix the red and white paints together in the remaining plates so you have six more shades, from dark to light.
