I’ve obviously had a lot of experience painting furniture, but painting on a canvas was a whole different and new project for me. I’ve always love the idea. It’s way more portable and space efficient, so I figured I would give it a go!
Textured Painting | Abstract
I love the textured look, so I bought drywall mud in a container, which is super cheap.
I didn’t really have a way I was going with it till I started, and what I ended up doing reminded me of a sunset and the ocean’
It only took a couple of
hours to dry outside in the summer air, but I would ideally let it dry overnight before painting.
I used watercolour paints for the base colours
I used blue for the water look
Then I added a coral pink to the sky
Followed by a darker pink and yellow for the sun. This required quite a bit of water as well to blend the colours
I then added acrylic paint to give it more of an abstract look, and I used a painting knife to do this.
I call it a tortured sunset!
