Rock Painting

I have been wanting to try my hand at rock painting for some time.  On a recent hike my kids and I grabbed a few rocks from the trail and gave it a go.

 It was definitely a lot harder than I expected.  It takes a steady hand and lots of time to let colours dry as you layer them.

My favorite by far was the penguin that I painted.

We all tried our hand at painting an owl.
The bodies were painted with acrylic paints and details were added with Sharpie markers.

My daughter also made a lady bug.


  1. Those are super cute. You've got talent:)

  2. Thank you so much for starting this blog. I've just started painting rocks. I find it obsessive and terrifying at the same time. Love the way you show up what to do by taking us through each step - and finishing off the project by Sharpie Markers (just ordered). Love your art and your daughter's. Lovely!
