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!
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:
Fill 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!
As 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.
Ta daaaa! :)
