Or at least, not lately....when I was 12 years old, I painted a lot more:
I held it up against the lilac walls in my room (I'm definitely not a fan of the wall colour but this isn't my own place so I can't change it) and thought, actually, this could work. I could go from the bland lilac wall, below...
... to a louder, more crazy art wall. You know, just because I can. And that lilac wall looks much more lilacy in person. Trust me!
What if I let the coat-rack painting inspire me and went nuts with colourful art?
|Something like this maybe?|
(I'm just going to pretend all that mess is part of the eclectic look. I'm a student - don't judge me.)
Yes, they are very big pieces and yep, very loud colours. So I may change my mind about the size and colours, but it was worth a shot to see how it might look. Either way, I'm keen to get my paintbrushes out and do some art, so I scouted out some inspiration. Here are a few of the painting ideas I'm loving:
I never considered a pink flamingo before, but this setup really had me considering it! Lurve it on that clean wall with the amazing seat underneath. I love pink paired with neutrals and earthy tones.
The colours and graphics in this are awesome. I've got a thing for doodling lines within lines, so the tattoo-like pattern rocks my boat.
A white frame and backing with a simple colourful paper bird inside is easy and effective. I'd love to do this with origami paper.
Why is the brown-paper background so amazing with a simple graphic print in only a couple of colours, below? It's so chilled out and stylish.
I only just realised they are all pictures of birds!
I'll be sure to post about it when I get around to doing some art - it may be some time, depending on my school workload.
