There are many online canvas painting tutorials but in this DIY Easy Canvas Art tutorial I am gonna show you how I reproduced this work in a super easy way.
I have had this project in mind from the time I first saw these canvas arts on one of the train station tunnels here in Kuala Lumpur.
They are a series of 5-6 different paintings, but I could only capture these two,
A lot people wonder what kind of paint to use on canvas, well I think for a beginner any kind of paint would do. I have worked with acrylic as well as fabric. Normally experts use oil paint but I would stay away from it because it’s difficult to deal with.
- Acrylic paints of your choice
- Basic stationary supplies
- White printer paper
You can say this is easy canvas painting tutorials for beginners.
I used this link to download the silhouette butterflies.
I just traced the butterflies on to the white paper by just placing it on my laptop screen.:P
I did tweak in their sizes to make them the size I wanted.
Then I cut them out.
Then I traced the butterflies onto the canvas.
After tracing out the butterflies, I just took a ruler and drew out these random lines. Now its totally up-to you how you want your lines to be.
Next, just PAINT! 😀
But, be sure to be neat around the edges.
When done with painting, I drew a border around the butterflies using a black permanent border and then just painted them in red.
Point to be noted is, before finally painting the red I first tried blue by painting it on the cut out and placing them on the canvas. But, it was a big NO NO.
And finally it was done! Super easy right?
What do you think? Will you make one for yourself?
