create new work for the fifth as the decor was in the colour of plums and purples. When I visited I decided to quickly sketch out designs within the suite from the patterns on the cushions and the shape of the lampshade and base and the back of the twin beds. I thought a pair of canvas acrylics sized 14 x 36 inches to hang behind the two headboards would be interesting. I created them both with Finity acrylics in lots of layers and texture, cutting back to lower layers for some of the patterns and added a pearl finish in areas and some shiny silk paints for the motifs .
The first images show the complete design and a close up of the silver in the bedhead, the squiggly patterns and McIntosh floral motif in the cushions .
The second piece depicts the shape of the lampshade and base as well as the patterns in the cushions.
I still have to do some tweeking, paint the sides of the canvases to match and varnish them both.
