|My painting inspired by Young House Love|
Anyway, I won't walk you through a tutorial...that website has already done it. But I'll show you the few photos I took along the way. My piece is smaller, but it still looks great even from across the room. I only had a 16x20 canvas on hand (and unfortunately no Michael's coupons at the time). As you can see I also chose a different color scheme. We are all about the grays in this house, literally! I'm thinking about taking just one of the white spaces and making it a bright color to pop out, like orange or even red. We'll see. I'm still debating.
Getting the canvas setup is a bit time consuming, but I don't think this is the sort of design you could free hand! I used a corner of an index card to get the points.
Here's what it looked like just before I started painting.
And just after I finished. It was actually still wet in that picture. I wish I had snapped one about halfway through. At one point I almost stopped, and was going to keep it unfinished because I liked the effect it created. I had about half of the canvas completely done and just a few spaces blocked in on the other half making a gradient effect. I may need to make another one!
