Watercolor is more popular than ever – these diluted colors and shapes look beautiful and very relaxing. Watercolor clothes, shoes, accessories, home textiles, and furniture – we see them everywhere, so let’s add a bit of trendy watercolor to your home decor to create a watercolor wall art piece. The number of types of watercolor artwork is endless: your home state, geoforms, various images, landscapes, even your photos that have been printed and then jazzed up with watercolors. I am sure everyone will find something they like. There are large format watercolor artworks that combine two decor trends: watercolor and large sizes, and they really make a statement.
You can create all kinds of watercolor artwork: abstract, ombre, various shapes, images, geometry, and so on. The basic technique and accessories are almost the same everywhere: you need watercolors, brushes, frames, and watercolor paper. Decide on the picture and the colors you want, stick with your room decoration: it’s seaside, paint an anchor or a seascape, it’s modern, go for geometric prints. Once you’ve chosen an image, first sketch it out on paper with a pencil, or if you’re pretty sure, just paint. First, press a little of your first color onto cardboard or another piece of watercolor paper. First, dip the brush in just enough water to distribute the paint without thinning it out too much. Paint according to your shape or picture you want to get and don’t forget to change the intensity of the colors if you want to get an ombre effect. If you want to get a geometric watercolor work of art, first paint the paper the colors you want and then let it dry. Now cut the paper into the desired geoform and attach it to cardboard or paper. If you’re just painting, the geoforms have thinned outlines. When your design is ready, just let it dry for a while and then frame it or just mount it on the wall as you wish.
Voila, now your artwork is ready! Read the tutorials below to find the artwork you like best and create it at home using the step-by-step guide.
If you have simple walls there are a lot of ways to decorate them. You can make a statement wall, decorate it with cool wallpaper, paint, stencils, even fabric and wood. Hang floating shelves, artificial animal heads, wreaths, bunting, etc. Your imagination is the only limit here. Photos and photo art are another cool and popular idea to use to decorate a simple wall. You can use wall murals or print your own pictures and rock them.
Oversized photo art or background images will give your room a very eye-catching look. Just choose the photo art carefully as it creates a mood. Print your own photos inspired by vacations or cool parties, for example, and create a cool photo wall. Choose frames in one style - buy or make them - to put them all in one composition. Today I'm going to help you create your photo wall and create this simple canvas print. Cut a piece of smooth pressed plywood to the desired size for your wall hanging. Slightly crop the picture to match the slight curvature in the wood. Paint the perimeter and edges of the wood. Use rubber cement to glue your picture onto the wood. Use spray paint and hang the picture with a sawtooth picture holder. Voila, now repeat that with all the pictures you want!
