PAINTING A HUGE CANVAS TO COVER A HEADBOARD

PAINTING A HUGE CANVAS TO COVER A HEADBOARD

This is a link to a past project that I thought some of my friends might be interested to see.
My client showed me a photograph and asked me to paint something similar on a huge canvas.
She wanted to cover her headboard with it.


She and her handyman stapled this huge canvas onto a large piece of plywood.
This canvas cloth was very inexpensive.  I think you could paint just about anything on it for a headboard or wall hanging.  You could paint castles, ABC's, handprints, a panda bear, ANYTHING!! and it would be so cute or cool.  Big squares or big triangles and stars.  Stripes.

    1. Thank you, Nick. I know it wasn't a flower but thought you might not mind because it was a nature painting.
