Find the inspiration first: I used Pinterest (as I always do) and searched for some Henri Matisse art, then opted for these two subjects I liked. Then start drawing free hand the main lines, not too afraid of making mistakes, cause they are just a guide for the painting process. You can also print the image you choose and try to draw the main lines overlaying the print and a paper leaf onto the window (just like when we were kids haha). In extremis… 😀
Time to paint! Choose the brush size that fits most the subject and start painting just by following the lines you have previously drawn. Dip the brush into the color, remove the eccess as you do with your nailpolish and try to paint with firm yet delicate movements of your wrist. Again, don’t be too scared of doing mistakes, you are doing art, just have fun!
Once done, let the paintings dry and then add the frames.
Voilà! I really love the final result, I feel so proud of my new art corner! I went for natural palette and vibes and I also added this beautiful piece from Photowall.
