Do You Make Your Own Abstract Canvas Art?

Have you been touring art galleries for abstract canvas art to hang on your walls but end up leaving the gallery frustrated because you could not find anything that you like?
Do not worry about it because it is possible for you to make your own abstract canvas art.

You may think it is impossible for you to create your own artwork because you are not an artist. However, with abstract art, it is entirely possible. All you need to do is to use the right tools and your own imagination. Abstract art is a form of art where the focus is on form and colours rather than on any particular visual subject or reference, it’s different from canvas photo prints.
But there is more to abstract art than just splashing and throwing prints on canvas. It takes some planning on the part of the artist; in this case, on your part.

Starting Your Own Abstract Canvas Art

Just like how you would do any do-it-yourself project, you would need to sit down and plan your project first, and then get the tools and materials that you require so that you can work on your abstract canvas art project. For the planning part, the first step that you may want to take is to have a look at the spot on your wall where you are planning to put up your painting.

If you are an absolute beginner in painting, it would be a great idea to start small. Buy a canvas that you believe is big enough for you to manage without feeling overwhelmed with your project. Other tools you will need are brushes, a palette and paints, either oil or acrylic.

As for ideas, you can base your abstract art piece on anything you fancy. You could use a print you saw somewhere, or maybe a photograph that you like.

print photos on canvas for Your Own Abstract Canvas Art

Let us say that you are using a photograph that you like in making your own abstract canvas art. You can start by putting transparent paper over the photograph and picking out the outline of the shapes you see in your photograph over this transparent paper. In this way, you would be able to see the negative space – the space between or around objects – in your photograph.

You can copy this outline right on your canvas. From here on, you can do two things. You can either fill the negative space with colour that you like or outline the shape that you have copied on your canvas with various colours that complement each other.

Afterwards, you can mix and blend your colours to create tones of light and dark. Creating such tones will give depth to your abstract canvas art, and thus make it more interesting to look at. You can also make your art more interesting by creating textures with different thicknesses of paint and different strokes of your brush.
There are a few things that you need to remember when you make your own abstract canvas art. First is that you should try to limit the number of colours you would use on your artwork, or else it would look garish and confusing. Another thing that you should bear in mind when painting your own abstract canvas art is just to have fun and let your imagination do the work.
