As I was looking at my Tumblr feed, I came across what I thought was an embroidery project at Poison Apple Print Shop. Upon closer inspection, I found that it was a back patch that was drawn and then printed. It would make a beautiful embroidered wall hanging, though.
Anyway…I have been wanting to do something with the lunar cycle for awhile and this was something I could try to replicate.
A while back on a whim, I bought three canvases. Finally, I knew what those three 8×8 canvases were hanging around for. I base coated the canvases with lamp black acrylic paint by Americana. For the dots and lines, I used gray acrylic by My Studio. Then sealed it all with a multi-purpose sealer also by Americana.
I sketched out the shapes of the circle and crescents to keep my lines in order.
The lines on the middle canvas aren’t perfect but I love this so much I don’t even care. Plus this was easy just painting lines and dots.
I started out with it vertically under the deer head I have on the wall but decided horizontally was a much more pleasing look. If I could only keep it straight.
I am absolutely in love with my triptych!
I will be linking up with these parties.
