Paint Nite with Hubby
Last week, my hubby and I finally got around to using a Groupon for PaintNite that I bought him for Christmas. Our schedules are super crazy with the full swing of Spring sports, school almost ending and outside play back in action.
I was so nervous on the way to our PaintNite for 2 reasons. 1- I have never been to the place that we were going to be painting. It is close to my house, but at a bar I have never been to. I am weird when it comes to my regular watering holes. 2- I am a horrible artist. Funny since I am a makeup and nail girl, but when it comes to bigger canvases, I bite it.
I was really glad about the structure of the whole night. It was super easy to follow along with and very easy for me to understand. Check and plus! The girl who was leading the class broke it down into 3 easy segments to paint. First was the sky and ground. Then the trees. Then the flowers.
As you can see, both interpretations of colors and shapes were very different for my husband and I. Mine was very ombre; because well, I'm into makeup. Ombre everything, I say! My husbands interpretation was very literal.
I think both paintings came out great. I was very surprised with my artistic abilities. The two Coronas I had didn't hurt either.
Overall, we had a great time. It was easy to follow. The supplies were all set up for us and there was drinks!!! I would definitely do this again; if another Groupon pops us. We were also looking to possibly try the Terrarium Night. My husband wasn't too excited about the little succulents because he has such big hands, but I would love to do it.
What do you think of these? Have you ever done a PaintNite? What did you get to paint?
