Colorful wall decor

I got this idea about a year ago and made an inner promise to myself that I wanted to finish it before this year is over. Never did I think that I would spend the last bits of summer trying to be a painter.

I bought some watercolor, which I’ve never used before, 3 canvases and some brushes. The first time around I actually managed to buy the wrong type of brushes which were not meant for watercolor. And getting the design onto the canvas was a whole different problem but with some good help from my talented friend we managed it.

First we scathed out the wanted design onto a piece of paper drawing lines horizontal and vertical. These same lines were also drawn onto the canvas so that it would be easier to copy it.


The biggest painting took me quite a long while to finish but I also took a week break in between. Taking a step back and not getting to sucked into your project is the key to any masterpiece. And then you can come back with fresh eyes and a new look on things.

I’m so happy with the end result, especially of the world map. This can cost up to 100 dollars online but making it yourself definitely gives you a greater appreciation of the artwork.

The paint job on the two pieces down below went relatively easy since it was a smaller canvas and not too many colors to work with.
Comment down below and guess which countries these are:

London

The last couple of days have gone to planning, organizing, and stressing, just a little bit. I’m an expert at stressing. Everything should preferably be planned and perfected at all time. I’m traveling to London on Monday and as much as I do like traveling, I also get anxious. I want my holiday to go as smooth as possible without any detours. I want most things be pre-order so that I can enjoy my stay as much as possible.

I’ve made a last minute re-booking of my hotel. After choosing a rather cheap but ok looking hotel, I went on trip advisor and was repulsed by the review that I needed to find a different hotel. Fingers crossed.

Debating on weather I should go back to bed and close my eyes for a minute or two. Or stay awake and make myself some breakfast. Still got a days work ahead of me and so many things I should have done..
