How to make an abstract canvas art

If you have space on a wall that needs filling, why not make your own abstract painting canvas? Even though the idea of large abstract ​​paintings makes you nervous, the good news is that no mistake is unfixable when you’re working with acrylic paints.

My boyfriend and I have been talking about putting something on the wall above the sofa in the living room. We have an idea of the kind of thing we want (something beachy, maybe the sea, painted rather than a photo), but so far, we have not found the ideal thing. And in the meantime, we still have that bare wall.  And that’s where this abstract canvas art comes in.

Even if you don’t believe that you are much of a painter, you can still make your own abstract canvas. All you really need to do is apply paint to the paintbrush and then use the brush to apply paint to the canvas. I'm not trying to be flippant here, that really is all it takes.

That is the beauty of abstract art canvas. It doesn’t need to look like anything in particular, so long as you're happy with the end result. The only thing you may struggle with is settling on the exact colors you want to use. And on that note…

How to choose your color
If you know where to put the canvas at home, chances are you already know which color to use. But if you have no idea at all, or you have an idea for one color, but don’t know if another color would look good with it, take a look at this article.

I recommend that you choose at least one contrasting color to break up the canvas slightly. Because there are many blue accents in our living room wall decor, It made sense to me that the canvas is mainly composed of blue tones.

But our sofa is brown, so I think it is best to add a couple of shades of brown. And since the living room is not a very bright room, I want to add some white to help lighten it up a little.
