Black, White and Orange Canvas Painting

Artwork:


This is another painting that I have recently completed for a friend's house.

I drew the rectangles in the positions that I wanted them in, and then painted around them in black. The red paint acts as a glue for the bits of orange cardboard that I stuck on for a bit of colour.


From a home decorating point of view, this canvas would suit a black and white themed room, and the orange bits were designed to tie in with, say, a bowl of mandarins or oranges on the bench or table.

Happy painting!

Colourful and Easy-to-Do Paintings on Canvas

Artwork:


I know that all my work lately seem to be paintings (Apples, Pears and Circles).... but here are some more artworks that I did recently for a friend's kitchen.


They're both really simple (and easy-to-do), but they have helped to modernise the kitchen very well!


Happy painting!

Big, Basic and Bright Canvas

Artwork:


This type of project is a really easy and cheap way to fill the spaces on your walls!!

I think this canvas cost me approx. $20, and I had the paint left over from feature walls and other jobs. Just choose a background colour that you like, then fill the space with simple shapes or lines... or whatever you like.

If you were not sure about painting something freehand, you could trace an object onto your canvas (for example, a tree-branch or a plate).

Happy painting!

Bright and Easy Canvas Pictures

Artwork:


These are made out of small canvases that can be purchased most places these days.

I used paint left over from painting feature walls in my house. Use some baking paper to trace your design onto each canvas, then rotate them so that each circle is not sitting the same way.

You'll need about five different colours that match together relatively well.

You could also try this in other colours like blacks and greys....... or use bigger canvases..... whatever matches the room that it is going into!

Happy painting!
