How to do a lemon painting on a bag:

Using your lightest yellow paint color (a lemon ice yellow paint), loosely paint a lemon shape in the bottom corner of your bag.  I just painted the basic outline, there is no need to fill it in yet.

Next, using your darkest yellow color (I went with almost an ochre color), create a shaded area on the bottom of your lemon on just one side.

Next, using your cheeriest shade of yellow, fill in the lemon’s center.  NOTE: Do not worry about filling in every single spot with paint, a more loose and abstract lemon is easier to paint than one that is perfect and precise.

The leaves are next, which I think really make these lemon bags stand out!  I used two different shades of green, but you could easily go with a more standard leaf green color – a light mint green and an almost robin egg blue/green color.

After the paint has dried, I used a simple black sharpie to add some simple detail.  I added small black dots on the upper corner of the lemon… because nuetral black makes all things better, in my opinion.

- Do not worry about filling in every single spot with paint, a more loose and abstract lemon is easier to paint than one that is perfect and precise.

I heart these bags in a big way.  And someone shared recently on Instagram that she made these for Valentine’s Day to hold all her kiddo’s goodie.  I loved that idea.
