The next day I pulled out the canvas and paint I didn’t really have a specific technique I wanted to use. I actually don’t know that much about painting but I knew that I could do something abstract. I had pinned some abstract art a while ago and used that as inspiration. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) I just kind of started. I painted a little bit then let that dry. I blended the blues at the corners and the orange/yellow. I tried not to mix the orange and the blues to much because I figured that would turn into some ugly brown color. So I was careful then those two colors got together and let dry completely. I only used 4 colors at the beginning then I went to AC Moore again at lunch one day and got two more colors. So there is a total of six colors: Seaside, Robin’s Egg Blue, Turquoise, Melted Butter, Carrot, Light Pink and they are My Studio Acrylic Craft Paint.
I used my figures to blend and like I said I am not a painter so my technique might be totally lame but it worked for me and I really like how it turned out. I am excited to start another one, since I got two 18x24 canvas I have a blank one sitting by my window waiting for color. I think I want to get two more colors of paint but keep the same color scheme as it goes with our bedroom and I would like to hang the painting above our dresser. I wasn’t planning on leaving white space but after I let it dry I thought it was done. I really liked it and I didn’t want to continue and ruin it. So it is done and I love it.
If you have any questions about what I did or supplies let me know?
