Easy Step-by-Step Painting

Step 1: Sketch out the general outline of the objects in your scene. In this case I’ve chosen a cat. Your sketch does not have to be perfect! Just create general shapes.

Cat SketchStep 2: Lay down the base colors for your painting. You want light colors first then build up darker colors. Keep in mind you are not doing detail here! You are just laying down a foundation for you to build on.

2015 Marks the end of the UFO

If you think about it the UFO, in the classic sense, is over. Technically it stands for unidentified flying object which can of course mean any unknown thing flying around the sky but in the past the UFO has been associated with extraterrestrials and science fiction.

2015 is the year of the personal drone and that simultaneously makes it the year UFOs are no longer interesting. I’ll give you an example:

Daughter: “Daddy what is that circular object hovering in the sky! Could it be space people!?”

Dad: “Probably the damn neighbors spying on the neighborhood again.”

These days UFOs are boring because, really, they probably are just your neighbor spying on the neighborhood, or someone running drugs, or Amazon delivering a package.
