Welcome to the 198th Masterpiece Monday!
Lately, I've been really loving the look of modern art. It all started this past Summer while I was visiting various model homes. After pricing artwork in the stores, I decided to try and create my own. Here are the actual pictures of the artwork from the model homes I visited, which served as my inspiration for my very first painting.
There were lot's of warm color schemes with fun swirly patterns.
I love this orange and yellow water color behind this desk, it's just beautiful!
There were more abstract versions with bold geometric looking brush strokes and using a lot of black with other neutrals.
some had a softer, more natural look.
The artwork which drew me in the most, were the ones with the ocean themed colors.
This picture and especially the one below it, inspired my painting the most. I set about trying to combine them in some way.
I used the same movement from this painting, I really love this one!
I found these two huge pictures on sale at Big lot's. Much cheaper than buying blank artist canvas. The paint I used was my collection of free samples of interior paint. I painted the panels white and let them dry overnight.
In the beginning, I thought this project was going to be quick. Just some swipes of paint and I would be done. It turned into a five week journey of thought and study. It was also the most fun I've ever had creating something!
I developed a method of adding paint, spraying it with water and randomly dabbing the paint with paper towels.
My hope was to create a free and fluid look using the watery colors I love to decorate with.
