Because I like my art to have a little depth…
I needed a piece of art for the wall between my dining room and kitchen and I fell in love with the design of this black and white canvas wall art…the only problem being that I actually tend to hate canvas prints.
I thought “ok, maybe it will look better in person” but, alas, I was wrong, ha. It actually looked even flatter and cheaper in person, so I knew I had to do something to fix it up a bit (and, yeah, it cost me under $20).
How to DIY Improve a Painting
What do you guys think? The difference doesn’t look that crazy in photos but, trust me, it looks SO MUCH BETTER in person.
You can see how FLAT this is…so boring.
All I did was basically paint over the lines that already existed, making sure to leave excess paint at certain points for that boost of texture. You can also use different paint brush sizes for a mix of design.
The “after” 🙂
So much texture and, in my opinion, it makes the canvas print look way more expensive than it actually is.
The side by side before and after.
