EASY Beginner Acrylic Painting FULL LENGTH Tutorial: Bench For Two!

Hey guys! In this full-length video tutorial, we’re painting a cute love-themed painting using Pantone’s colours of the year, Serenity and Rose Quartz!

Tools and Supplies:

Acrylic Paint:

  • Titanium white
  • Mars Black
  • Light Blue Violet
  • Light Portrait Pink
  • Quinacridone Magenta
  • Ultramarine Blue


  • Flat soft-bristle brush (I’m using a #9 flat, but it depends on the size of your canvas, mine is 16×20″)
  • Small filbert brush (I’m using #2)
  • Small round brush (I’m using #1)


  • misting spray for water
  • your canvas (I’m using a 16×20″ canvas panel)
  • plastic/foam dinner plate as a palette
  • palette knife or popsicle stick to mix colours

And that’s it! No mediums or anything extra, this painting is simple and straight-forward, perfect for a beginner. I did it in under an hour, but a true beginner may take an hour and a half to complete it.

I hope you enjoy! Leave me a comment below if you’d like to see more of these long-style painting tutorials! Thanks for watching!
