Simple Red Bird Canvas

Artwork:


This is a very simple design on canvas and I painted it for a friend's living room.

The colours she has used in her room are light browns, creams, whites and, of course! red.

It sits on the wall behind one of the sofas and the block of red colour plus the contemporary bird design really helps to modernise her room.

Happy painting!

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!

Simple Apple Design Picture

Artwork:


A few weeks ago I painted a picture of a pear.....

and this is the apple that goes with that picture! They are simple designs but look really effective on a large blank wall!

Happy painting!

Simple Pear Design Picture

Artwork:


This is a painting that I did yesterday using inspiration from the millions of 'retro pear' designs around.

It's going to hang in the house of a friend of mine who has a living room with red and navy furniture.

I'm also going to do an apple picture in the opposite colours to this one (i.e. navy canvas and red apple) in the coming weeks to match!

Happy painting!
