On a light wall – take a brush that is comfortable in your hand and outline something that you love. In this instance, flowers and stems. The wall is only about 3 feet wide. I painted the stalks, stems and flowers on both sides of the atrium doors.
A soft taupe color did not interfere with the other art in the room; it just added a little life and interest to a few white walls in my dining room; part of the room is dark gray with white accents. I did this free-hand so that it looks totally like nature; well, somewhat like nature. You can do the same with a dark wall and add light paint to it for a more dramatic effect. You’ll love it.
If you think an artist is the only person who ‘dare’ paint on walls, think again, because this is easy and if something doesn’t work out, you can paint over it or add more colors.
Try this on a bland wall in any room with any design you are comfortable with. I have seen people do circles or blocks or initials and you can use regular wall paint. Use the idea for a headboard or behind a plain headboard. The sky is the limit. The stems, twigs, flowers will look as though they are growing from behind the bed.
Be creative always. Have fun. This is fast, easy and enjoyable art. bloom on...
