Im a big fan of DIY jobs. why? well, first of all, there’s nothing I hate more than spending money on shit I can do myself. second, it’s quite a rewarding & highly satisfying job. Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with what they call “golden hands”, I’ve always been good with fixing/disassembling/building/painting things and simply love getting my hands dirty whenever I can, so I’m always excited to take on new fun projects and produce awesome shit!

I’ve been planing to paint a new painting for our bedroom wall for ages, and since I love patterns, shapes and (obviously) rainbow scale colours, I wanted to create a piece that will combine all of them.

Inspiration came from the least expected place in the form of my husband’s work diagrams.
He is writing codes for spaceships’s fuel sloshing calculations and all sorts of geek stuff I don’t even know how to pronounce, that when being displayed creates magnificent rainbow vomit magic!

sloshing

I always get overly excited when I see it on his screen and it inspired me to make a piece, that with the right amount of patient, everyone can make;

What you’ll need:
+ Wooden stretched canvas, the bigger the better.
+ Some good quality acrylic colours.
+ 2 brushes, Liner & Filler.
+ A ruler & a B2 pencil.

Start with drawing random sized triangles on your canvas using the ruler & pencil:

Tri1Fill every triangle with a different colour, making 3 layers coating for every triangle so the colour block turn out nice and not see through (wait for them to dry before applying the next coat!) and try not to step out of lines!

tri2As I said… you’ll need a lot of patient for this one; it took me around 20 hours to complete (depends on your canvas size, mine was HUGE) there are between 3-5 triangles for every colour, meaning, you’ll have to do a lot of mixing and coming up with new shades.

tri3And finally…..

tri5

Ta daaaa! :)

    Love the painting, don’t love the rude blog owner. Are you always this rude to your readers and their questions? I certainly hope not!

    This is most certainly not a step-by-step tutorial – you just said “start with drawing random size triangles”. That’s a very vague statement to those who are pattern novices, honestly.

    That being said, this really is lovely and looks wonderful and I look forward to starting my own soon. Just hope I don’t have any questions about how to do it.

      Thanks :)
      I’m honestly not rude darling, just quite allergic to questions-with-obvious-answers.
      you don’t have to be a rocket scientists in order to draw triangles ;)

    Penny’s question is valid. You stated “start with drawing random size triangles” If your photos are correct that is NOT what you did. You started with straight lines then build triangle from them.Penny was not “silly” You were silly.

      Hey Gary, I think you’ve misread me. When a person writes a post explaining the stages of the creation process and then someone comes asking a question that can easily be answered by reading the text or looking at the photos, I find it rather silly. Pennie’s question was pretty much “stating the obvious”.

    Beautiful! It seems like each triangle was drawn off the next. Like, you drew the first one, then the next using a side of the existing triangle, and so on. Am I right?

      Well, Pennie, I’ve written the post for the sole purpose of explaining how I did that so your question is kind of silly.

    Nice! That’s pretty inspiring. And to think, if a store were to sell this, they’d easily try to sell it for no less than £50.

      heheh well considering I’ve only spent 15£ on the canvas, i’d say it’s a win ;)
