All Crafts and Puddles of Paint both offer free painting patterns and tutorials. Painting instructions are available for a wide range of painted mediums and surfaces.
Puddles of Paint is maintained by a single artist, so all of the patterns on this site are for paintings in a similar style. This site offers an e-packet of designs in a downloadable PDF format, as well as linking to other sites where these particular tutorials are posted.
The selection of patterns on All Crafts includes step-by-step instructions for floral paintings, painted designs on household objects and tutorials for using specific mediums such as water color.
