Living in Florida has been great for my love of everything related to the beach. I decided to have a nautical feel in my family room.
To create the background, I combined multiple shades of blue with a foam brush. I was certain to keep all the same direction. Don’t forget to paint the sides too.
Next, I added the anchor and rope. I used the same technique I have used multiple times (explained in depth here). I have come to love this technique because it is easy and allows me to paint a variety of things I never would be able to paint otherwise.
This canvas worked great above the television, with the extra tall ceilings.
