DIY Your Own Original Canvas Paintings: Ombre Drip Painting

I'm really excited to be writing today's post (well... as excited as I can be about anything at 6:30am) because I'm going to be sharing something I've been thinking about for a long time. Art. Specifically, canvas art. It really gives a cultured and collected feel to a space- it's perfect to add a little interest to a gallery wall, or to lean up against a wall, and it always creates the perfect backdrop for vignettes. 
 
BUT, it's pricey. And as much as I'm sure we would all love to have original paintings in our homes, it's not always in the budget. Especially for something large-scale.
 
I know what some of you are thinking. But I'm not an artist! Last time I painted something was in elementary school art class. Me too. Just hear me out.
 
View the slideshow above for a step-by-step guide to this ombre project.

I don't consider myself an artist. I would never, ever, ever compare the paintings I've done to someone who creates for a living. However, I love to do it. It's very affordable in comparison to purchasing original art, and the pieces I create add so much texture and beauty to our home. I'm starting a new series where I will teach you all that I've learned about painting and show you how to create your own (easy) paintings. You can do this! I promise.
 
And it all starts today. I'm going to show you one of the easiest painting techniques today, and hopefully if you're still doubting your ability, this will convince you that it can be done.
