Painting art inspiration

Painting is one of those things I love doing, and never do.
Or at least, not lately....when I was 12 years old, I painted a lot more:

I found this crinkled, huge painting today that I did as a kid. At the time I didn't get to choose the subject matter ( a coat rack!) but I did get to choose my own colours. Pop!

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?
Too much?

(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.

All comments, feedback and ideas welcome! :)

  1. Having a sound sleep at night is necessary for a person’s health. Choosing a good furniture or mattress that complements your body’s shape and is in accordance with its physical needs and sleeping patterns is very important.

  2. Look around your living room, and it is not hard to find no matter where you place your sofa, it would still be the most visible standout piece of furniture, and it is definitely the most used one.

  3. Wow, these are the very nice collection. Can you please upload more designs?
