Each day has been full of beauty and new things in my new hometown in Charleston. It is amazing that a trip to Target involves driving on a bridge over deep water filled with boats and sea life. Something about seeing the ocean and the smell of the salt in the air instantly calms me. Of course, I bring the same feeling into our home with beach and nautical touches. I created a very simple painting that I wanted to stare with you.
A Simple DIY Beach Art
I started with a wood painting board. I like painting on wood because of how the grain can compliment the painting.
I am not the best at hand lettering so I cheated with stickers.
I measured and marked where I wanted to place the letters.
After I placed the letters, I coated the entire board with a light coat of spray paint. This is to act as a primer to the paint.
I with a mixture of blue paint, white paint and water I created a paint wash. I painted the board with the paint wash.
Once the paint wash dry, I removed the stickers. I used the unpainted sticker areas as a template to create the wording.
There you go, my easy breezy beach painting.
