Rock Painting is an art that transforms stones using paint and creativity. Painting all-around is an unique artistic experience: no perspective is involved, there is no foreground or background: imagination can run wild.
All starts with the search for the natural canvas: the rock.
Let me show you some examples of transformations and some lessons that show the step-by-step process .

Painted stones - before- after

If you are new to painting, I suggest that you start with a simple project and then progress to the more detailed animals with fur.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes as you strengthen your skills, I encourage you to practice and to have fun experimenting through trial and error on your own, as I did.

There’s no limit to where this adventure can lead!

On this page you'll find an assortement of unique rock painting projects.
Each painting lesson is about a specific animal, it includes detailed painting instructions, suggestions for paint colors, line drawings and colour photographs.
The FREE lessons are basic, they will help you gain confidence in painting and will teach you something new, I hope.
