I redecorated my livingroom when I put up the Christmas tree. I went from red and white to earthy tones.
In one corner I had a painting I had done, but it was all wrong for this space now. It was in bright red, green and purple. It really clashed with the room! But what to do?
I bought a stretched canvas, which came with a frame and some tubes of acrylic paints in the new room colours and set to work. I can paint pretty well, and I knew what style I wanted, but a design just wasn’t coming to me. So I cheated. I went to art sites and browsed by colour. Then I’d digitally cut out the bits I liked from each one.
Then I assembled them into a pleasing design emphasizing what I wanted. I had in mind leaves and autumn for this picture, which would go with the new room colours.
And in three days, this is what I had.
