For this months #Stylewise post I decided to have a go at some DIY Art.
I had a large white canvas that I used to use to take photographs of items on for my businesses. Its sat behind a cupboard for the last 6 months. After picking the brains of the art teacher at school I discovered that Acrylic paints would be best so picked a few colours up on a trip to the shops.
I’m no artist, can’t even draw a stick man so I had already decided it would be a bit of an abstract piece! ohhhh to put that first brush stroke on the canvas…..
But first to mix up the paint. I wanted various blues and whites to hopefully bring together the colours I am introducing into the bedroom when I make it over.
OK Hubby, you make the first mark please. Ohh yes, nice colour.
A bit this way, a bit that way. Layer on some texture (is this how proper artists do it ? ) doubt it.
Mix a bit more paint up. Swish it this way, swish it that way.
Some nice white flashes. Are we done yet ? Yes think so, no just a bit more there and a bit more over here.
Steps back…… Bit more over here, ohh don’t like that, bit more here. See its knowing when to stop !
Yep, ok LEAVE IT ALONE NOW !
