Simple Rustic Wall Art
Surprise surprise, my husband has yet again created an awesome piece of wall art for our living room!
I've always envied his ability to make such eye catching yet simplistic art and he never spends more then an hour or two making it.
This specific piece was painted using black and white acrylic paint on a plain white canvas. He first outlined the basic shape of the wood in pencil, and then painted over it using a very thin brush. He worked his way from outside to inside and slightly varied the distance between each tree ring.
After each tree ring was painted and dried, he used white paint and added a little detailing to make the wood piece look more realistic.
Unfortunately (or fortunately :) we still have a lot of empty wall space to fill, but I'm excited to add this to our slowly growing art collection!
