Simple Orange Bottles Painting


This painting on canvas project is really very easy and it looks so nice and modern. Last year I did a couple of other paintings in a similar simple style (see them here and here) … and so I thought I’d try another one!

Use whatever colour takes your fancy to paint the background of your canvas - I felt like something bright and orange as there’ll be a long grey winter ahead! Then choose a contrasting colour and paint something simple.

You could try a cup, a jug, a chair…. whatever you can think of. Don’t worry if the drawing’s not perfect. The only challenge with this project is to ensure that you keep your painting simple. I wanted to add more to my bottles, for example, but I made myself stop!

It’s the uncluttered style that gives it a modern and striking look.

Happy painting!
