Primary TechniquePainting



  • Two coordinating acrylic paint colors
  • White acrylic paint
  • Four foam brushes
  • 12” X 12” canvas



  1. Using one color, begin adding dashes down the canvas, leaving space similar to size of that brush stroke in between.
  2. Create almost brick looking structure, with gap in between each row.
  3. Take another brush and add in other color in gaps between first color.
  4. Take third brush and swipe white down the empty section between rows, slightly mixing the colors together.
  5. Using fourth dry brush and swipe across the canvas going against the rows in the opposite direction, creating blurred result.
  6. Use white brush and add simple line of v-shaped accent across the bottom of the canvas.
