Painting Templates – 100+ Free Downloadable Traceables
Welcome To My Traceable Library!
Print out these painting template traceables and transfer them to your canvas so you do not have to worry about the drawing aspect of painting!
Need more information about how to use these traceables? Check out my reference guide here. Click on the title to be directed to the tutorial.
I recommend you use a sheet of graphite paper to transfer these to your canvas. You can also use a regular pencil, scribble on the back of the paper and then trace it over your canvas.
Try out Rapid Resizer (affiliate link) for resizing traceables to any canvas size including the popular 16 x 20 size! I personally use this software and LOVE it! It is a game changer as far as resizing anything to any canvas size AND creating traceables for paintings.
This is becoming a very large library of traceables. If you are looking for a particular one, hit “control f” or “command f” on your keyboard and type what you are looking for. Example: “control f” type in “truck”.
