How To Create Our Painted Canvas:
Select a canvas you already own but have tired of or purchase an inexpensive canvas from the craft store.
Choose a background colour and apply the paint generously. Store-bought canvased artwork typically doesn’t have any texture to it, so use a thick paint brush to add brush stroke texture to the piece and allow to dry.
Once dry, add a secondary colour to the background. This should be a vibrant pop or metallic colour as it will mostly be covered by the next few layers of paint.
Once dry, pour pools of colour on to the canvas and use your brush to stroke the colour across the canvas.
Let dry and add multiple layers of paint as necessary until the canvas is to your desired liking.
