Create Your Own Monochrome ABSTRACT ART Painting – DIY Tutorial

Have you ever seen a monochrome abstract painting at an art gallery and thought, you could have done it yourself? The idea of doing your own art is a smart one as it will be a cost-effective and personable way of decorating your home.

Even if you don’t see yourself as a creative person, anyone can attempt at abstract art. All you need is a little bit of time, thick paper or canvas, brushes, paint and a cool idea that vibes with you.

For me, it’s monochrome abstract art that I love!

I’ve received a few questions about where I purchased this art over on Instagram and some of you were surprised when I say I Did It Myself.

You can find many ideas on Pinterest, and I’ve gathered a few myself. Check out my MONOCHROME ABSTRACT ART Pinterest board for inspiration.

Material and Tools Needed
  • A pencil
  • A Ruler
  • A Tube of water-based Black Acrylic paint
  • A Paintbrush
  • Masking tape
  • A compass if you want to draw round shapes
  • 300gsm Paper for acrylic painting in A1 size to fit my frames
  • Frames in A1 size or matching your paper size

The process

Start by tracing your design with a pencil and a ruler. Then place your masking tape and start painting!

To avoid bleeding marks, remember to paint inwards from the masking tape
I used the flower vase as a DIY canvas to trace a round shape. Very crafty!
