Big Red Egg Painting on Plywood

Artwork:


This project was quick, cheap and easy! I knew I wasn’t going to have much time this week, and this painting literally took me half an hour to complete, including drying time!

My lovely Christmas tree picture had to come down this week, and I wanted to put something bright and modern and with a touch of Scandinavian in its place.


So I purchased a piece of good quality plywood from Bunnings for about $16 (900 x 600 x 12), drew my egg outline on it in pencil, and then painted it. The colour I used was Dulux Red Alert.


It’s a VERY simple design (no skill required!), but the picture looks so contemporary hanging on my kitchen wall.


This project also has endless possibilities for variations in colour and choice of object. Even a set of three plywood panels with different coloured eggs would look great too.

Happy painting!
