Recently I have been trying to figure out what to put above the couch in our living room. After weeks of searching I could still not find anything. Then I stumbled upon the following pictures and decided I would just make it myself:)

So here is my version of Ombre art:) It is not perfect but as someone with zero painting/drawing ability I am pretty satisfied with my final product. Here it is:
#1. Bought my supplies.
– acrylic paint (bottle of main color choice & one bottle of white paint)
-canvas (size of choice) – mine was already covered in gesso so I did not need to prep anything.
-glass of water & paper towel – for cleaning brush between strokes
-masking tape – I taped off my edges so I had some guideline for my strokes
#2. Mixed colors
#3. Start painting – Since my canvas was quite large and I was having a hard time mixing colors, I decided to have my colors mirror each other. To do this I started on the outside and moved inward. Luckily, I had the exact amount of needed colors:)
#4. Let dry
#5. Hang it up and enjoy your beautiful work! – we just used some dry wall screws
