A few weeks ago, after searching for artwork for her apartment, my daughter could not find the right painting at a reasonable price. So she decided to make her own. She came over to our house and bought some canvas and some acrylic paint at the craft store. The paint colors were chosen to match her apartment decor.
First she took a blank canvas and started sponging the first color.
Then it was time for the other colors
until the entire canvas was covered.
Next, she took some black and white paint for contrast, and added some features. In this case, a fleur de lis and some flowers.
Then we set the painting outside to dry. This is the finished product:
It came out really nice and is the perfect color scheme for her apartment. It also did not cost a lot. It inspired me to try to paint something too, I will let you know how it goes. Have you painted before?
