Want an original type of family art?? Try a Whanau Tree :D
This is a painting I did from the handprints of all my family. I themed this one for Summer, I also did a foot one for Autumn, though I cant find the pic anywhere :( I had plans for a Spring and Winter, though I didnt get around to it. Would love to see versions :)
Just go around and trace around each members hands (left and right).
Cut all your templates out and arrange them on the canvas so it looks right. Then trace around all the hand templates.
Draw any kind of trunk you want, I just used a womans body.
Now you'll want to paint some leaves on all of the hand shapes, you can go over the edges, keep the templates so you can go over them later.
