I wanted some art for my tiny
bedroom house and what’s better (and cheaper and more creative) than painting my own canvas? The whole attempt would set me back at most 10 euros if it was unsuccessful, so why not? The moment I dipped my brush into the paint a thousand memories came back to me. I used to paint a lot as a kid (of course), but also during my school years. I may not be an artist, but I am extremely familiar with acrylics.
I started by applying a color that was relevant with what I had in mind to the whole canvas and then I added more colors until I was satisfied with the result. I limited my colors to blues, greens and yellows, to keep it more cohesive and less messy. I had no specific inspiration, but after all these years of visiting galleries I knew what I wanted to make. The result looks quite nice to me, even though it is completely amateurish.
I also painted the sides with a solid color, but I am not sure I like it better this way. Maybe next time I’ll live it bare. The size of the canvas is 40 by 40, which is not small at all. Although I think I’ll go for something bigger next time.
Here’s a photo from afar.
All in all, I think it works nicely with my faux sheep skin and the room in general. I’m looking for a nice chair for this corner, but till I find something
free super affordable this one will do.
So, do you like it? Any art critics out there? Also, have you tried painting something lately? Or doing something creative in your free time? Do tell.
ps. Of course I bought my supplies at my favorite store…
