Guys! I made a video! It's hilariously embarrassing because you're just staring at my butt the whole time [and my shirt was a little low cut - YIKES!] But because I love you all and trust that you won't make fun of me too much... I'm gonna let you watch it ;)
But first let me explain what would possess me to play cinematographer in the first place. So remember when I used an oversized graphic/abstract art piece for this staging sesh?
Well I was inspired by the oversized abstract art that is popping up in decor magazines and trendy homes all over the place.
But what you didn't know is my DIY version only took me 5 minutes. What?! You don't believe me?! Well that's why I took a video ;) Before you watch, let me briefly explain my process behind this piece. First rule of abstract art: there are no rules. Seriously, just let yourself go wild and stop when you like what you see.
I opted for a navy paint [mostly because I didn't have any black] but I love that it makes it a little less stark. Using a large paintbrush loaded with only a little bit of paint, I made broad, sweeping brushstrokes across the canvas. I wanted the strokes to really show some texture so I only filled in where I wanted a richer hue and stayed more "feathered" at the edges.
Well. Here goes nothing. Thanks so much for watching and I hope it at least makes you chuckle ;)
It's a painting in 5 minutes! You heard me right - now you can watch the evolution of the DIY abstract art from my mid-century-modern-rustic-eclectic photoshoot. Enjoy!*disclaimer* this is my first video so bear with me (and also... I'm sorry)Posted by StyleMutt Home on Sunday, September 6, 2015
