DIY Wednesday: Wall Art


This week's post is about two paintings I did for my brother for Christmas. He's out on his own in his first bachelor pad and doesn't have much for wall art. I found a retro design as inspiration. I used colors that were more "manly" like green, blue and grey. He just purchased a sage green sofa, so I tried to use that in the painting. I used a ruler and freestyle to draw the outline then filled in the blanks with acrylic paint. The project took about five hours to complete.

Here's the inspiration I found online.

The outline I free-styled on the canvas.

The finished painting.

The two paintings together. One is meant to hang vertical and the other horizontal.
