2016 is here, and it’s bringing some amazing super hero team-ups! Batman is heading back to the big screen this year in the gloomy Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Put out a call for the Dark Knight with this Batsignal painting (of a dark night) for Bat-fans of all ages.
This painting is inspired by this tree art project on chd école.
What You Need
- Watercolor paper
- Black tempera or acrylic paint
- Small bowl (for a template)
- Batman logo (link below)
Begin by placing a small bowl in the middle of the watercolor paper. This will serve as a template for the light of the Batsignal.
Next, paint the paper around the bowl with black watercolor paints. Don’t make the paint too wet, or it may bleed under the bowl.
Allow the paint to dry. Remove the bowl from the paper.
Next, print this Batman logo. Tape the page to a window, and then tape the painted watercolor on top. The logo should be approximately in the middle of the unpainted circle.
Trace the Batman logo in the white circle.
Next, use the black acrylic or tempera paint to complete the Bat in the signal. Allow to dry.
Beginning at one corner, use the black acrylic or tempera paint to create large tree branches across the page. The branches can cover parts of the signal light, but try to avoid covering the logo itself.
Continue working around the signal light, adding branches to each corner of the paper.
Once you’ve adding branches on each corner, your Batsignal painting is complete! Hang it in a Batman themed room for just the right amount of Bat-moodiness.
