Painting by numbers the NinjaMedic way

Step One:

1: Gather your materials, in this case a Gesso treated canvas, 3" and 2" brushes and a bottle each of red and yellow acrylic paint:

2: Add appropriate soundtrack. In this case it included the Beastie Boys, David Bowie, The Smiths, The Stranglers, The Clash, Dexy's Midnight Runners, The Pretenders, The Jam and Fun Boy Three:

3: Turn music on, apply paint to canvas with brush (or fingers if you want a more textured look). If it looks too thick, add a little water. Don't be afraid, some of the best art comes from being fearless. Groove for half an hour or so or until desired effect is achieved:

4: Leave alone and let it dry.

Tomorrow we'll discuss Step Two, again with pictorial directions.
