Uplifting Wall Art

Last week's MATS focus was all about the Wall Decor market. Tasked with creating a collage piece of wall art using traditional methods (at least for some parts of the process), I took to my beloved and neglected acrylics and went out to find new canvas boards and brushes. To make matters more challenging I had to work mainly with two set colours based on my star sign, accompanied by as many neutrals as I liked.

I began by looking for inspiration of colour combinations and all the countless shades and variations of my two focal colours. I played around mixing paints, pushing each to their hypothetical boundaries, mixing blue until it was almost green but not quite, yellow to almost orange and everything in between.
