Because our house up her is T-I-N-Y, we have a lot of artwork that is too big and too fussy. So, I have been considering a smaller landscape to go over my fireplace. I feel like this might bring a calmer and more serene feel to the room. And truth be told, I have been thinking that I might want to paint one myself. From what I hear oils can be easy to work with because the more layers you add the richer it looks. OK, I'm only half-kidding.
So, here were the inspirational pieces I was eyeing...
Below are some things I have pinned on making your own art. I figure, nothing ventured, nothing gained...right. I'll let you know how it goes.
1) Paint the canvas all crazy 2) Use painter's tape to create a herringbone pattern with some missing 3) Paint over the canvas in white 4) Remove tape and voila!
