Today, I have another little "art on the cheap" project to share with you.
Some of you may remember the art I created for our main bathroom a couple of months ago. I just framed up some pretty fabric.
I still think the fabric is pretty, but I just wasn't feelin' it. I wanted something that was more "me".
I'd been tossing around the idea of creating some canvases for a while, and had originally considered painting some with a chevron motif, but then I decided that something a little more organic would be better.
So here is what I came up with...
I started by creating a template (which I don't have a photo of). It consisted of the center shape that you see between the thick lines. Then I just traced it onto the canvas (over and over again) putting enough space between each one to create the lines that I then painted.
Here's a view of one of the paintings in-progress.
And here again, is the final project! Loving them!! And the clincher was that I just used some leftover latex paint from my rehabbed console. Perfect!
Now it's your turn...
