I {heart} U xx

This is a 20″ x 16″  (51cm x 40cm) canvas I painted for my daughter to hang in her bedroom. She’s been after a big canvas (or 3) in bright, funky colours for her room but I never managed to be in the right headspace to do it… till a few days ago. I saw a smaller canvas on Tammy’s blog which inspired me in its simplicity. She just used bright Neocolours and water and kept it very simple.

I painted a large canvas with blobs first and doodled and drew and toned, etc. till I had lots of flowers in bold colours. It was too busy for Amber, but I had another idea and used “boxes” for hers, keeping it less cluttered, with more white spaces.

"I heart U"

A little closer…

And again…

And the best bit? She likes it… 🙂

  4. The dimensional look to the squares really makes this pop! It is so much fun exploring canvas with paint, so different than paper. And it’s icing on the cake that your daughter likes it!
