Plywood Skyscraper-Design Panels

Artwork:


This project was really enjoyable to paint, and it was also very easy to do! I wanted this artwork’s design to be plain, geometric and modern. Once I’d completed the project, I thought they looked like the windows of skyscraper buildings, hence the name.

My plywood panels use a VERY simple concept of squares for the design, and they are based on my Black, White and Orange Canvas that I painted some time ago. My panels were cut ages ago by our builder (so I can’t claim any credit for using the saw to cut them up!), and they’re each 12.5cm x 30cm.


I simply drew on the squares with pencil.


Then I used a fine brush to paint around each square. The lovely charcoal colour I have used is Dulux Grid. I thought they looked better with the sides left unpainted.



I plan to hang them up using those Command sticky picture hangers.

This project is for a friend’s 40th birthday – I hope she enjoys her Plywood Skyscraper-Design Panels!
