As mentioned in a post I did earlier this week, I’ve been scouring for art work to fill the wall by my dining room table. After doing some research, as we all know, unique, original artwork can have a very heavy price tag. Therefore, after contemplating for some time, I decided put my beret on paint a piece of art of my own.
I was thoroughly delighted with the results, but I was even more thrilled about my experience during the process. What I had envisioned to be a SUPER simple piece (I was literally going to paint two colour stripes and call it a day), turned out to be much more than that! I just decided to go with it and see where it landed.
I’d love to hear your feedback on my first canvas art creation. Please?
What you’ll need:
- Assorted Acrylic Paint. I went with a few tubes of BASICS paint and also a few other brands I already had at home from other projects. I wouldn’t suggest going super high quality your first time but definitely not the tubes from the dollar store, I find that their consistency is extremely thin.
- Variety of All-Purpose Brushes, I bought the Brown Nylon bristles, they worked well
- A large canvas, mine was 20×30 inches, gallery style
- Painter’s tape
The DIY Canvas Art definitely added some colour into the space and also speaks to our style. I bought another two smaller sized canvases and can’t wait to drum up another couple of pieces.
This is such a simple DIY yet will yield a dramatic result!
