I have had this project in mind from the time I first saw these canvas arts on one of the train station tunnels here in Kuala Lumpur.
They are a series of 5-6 different paintings, but I could only capture these two. And as you can see the second art is the inspiration for my easy canvas art tutorial.
A lot people wonder what kind of paint to use on canvas, well I think for a beginner any kind of paint would do. I have worked with acrylic paint as well as fabric paint. Normally experts use oil paint but I would stay away from it because it’s difficult to deal with.
DIY Easy Canvas Art Tutorial
- Acrylic paints of your choice
- Basic stationary supplies
- White printer paper
You can say this is on the easy canvas painting tutorials for beginners. I used this link to download the silhouette butterflies then I just traced the butterflies on to the white paper by just placing it on my laptop screen. 😛 I did tweak in their sizes to make them the size I wanted.
Then I cut them out.
Then I traced the butterflies onto the canvas.
After tracing out the butterflies, I just took a ruler and drew out these random lines. Now its totally up-to you how you want your lines to be.
Next, just PAINT! 😀 But, be sure to be neat around the edges.
When done with painting, I drew a border around the butterflies using a black permanent border and then just painted them in red.
Point to be noted is, before finally painting the red I first tried blue by painting it on the cut out and placing them on the canvas. But, it was a big NO NO.
And finally it was done! Super easy right?
What do you think? Will you make one for yourself?
