Whale Rock Painting Craft For Kids

I’m really loving painting at the moment. In fact my favourite thing to paint are rock stones and milk bottles. It is so fun and I really do love it. I remember when I was a child how my Art teacher mocked me and made me feel that my cartoon style ocean creatures were rubbish. I liked them but she really embarrassed me and for around 20 years I never drew again. I decided to try again last year and rediscovered something I love, ocean creatures and cartoon style painting. Today I have made a cute Whale stone. I hope you enjoy.

 Let’s Make It

To begin with I like to draw and plan my ocean creature on a sketch pad. I find it much easier to plan and then redraw onto the stone once I know what my character will look like.

Once I had drawn my whale onto my stone, I coloured the whole whale in blue using a posca paint pen.

I then coloured in the white eyes, added detail using a thin black posca pen and added a little grey to the bottom of the whale and his tale. Painting can be so much fun and can be done at any age!

Enjoy!

  1. This is such a cute design. I have been painting rocks with my girl scout troop, and they would have fun with this. Have you ever sprayed them with a sealer to make them weather resistant?

  2. I LOVE whales! They’re one of the most majestic creatures on the planet, I cried when I saw one out in the wild the first time haha! Definitely want to make these with my kiddos!

  3. Wowwowowow I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s so creative. Saved your tutorial and subscribed for further updates as well.

  4. We live by the beach so often paint pebbles we find, and shells too! We also varnish them to give as paper weight pressies or to decorate our garden!
