A Closer Peek at my Living Room Painting

Sydne Style shares white abstract painting for modern home decor ideasAfter one of my #ssathome photos was reposted on Instagram, I got a bunch of questions about the painting hanging in my living room. I was beyond flattered because I painted it! Painting has always been a release for me. I find it so relaxing to sit on my balcony and mix oils on a canvas.

So today I wanted to give you a closer look at my white abstract oil painting in case you were curious. My goal for the artwork was to create a piece that would blend with my home. So the bottom layer is full of pinks, peaches and grays with a touch of yellow and gold. I used a variety of techniques to layer with white so the color softly shows underneath depending on the light and where you stand. It’s hard to capture because it’s so full of layers and texture. But I hope the up-close photos give you a better idea. You can also watch this home vlog to see the process of the painting, as well as a closer look into some of the other art in my home if you’re interested!

Sydne Style shows where to get affordable white abstract paintings for home decor ideasIf you’re not the DIY type, I found some white abstract paintings online that have a similar vibe. One little trick I taught my friend, is you can always add to a painting you buy to give it more texture. For example, if you find an abstract painting that feels a little flat, pick up some white acrylic paint from the art store, Without using water, paint thick brush strokes on various parts of the artwork. It gives less expensive pieces a richer 3D feel.
