Happy Friday! Today is the second of my new mini series called Easy Art in 1.2.3 : Abstract Diamonds. So often, I see art work that I fall in love with, but the price is more than I am willing to pay. In this series, I am going to go step-by-step on how YOU can make your own art work for a fraction of the cost!

The first step in this piece of art is laying out the overall shape. Using a pencil, I roughly drew out two diamonds almost the entire size of the paper. Then outline the diamond shapes with washi tape. This is to help give a crisp edge to your painting.
Once your main shape has been laid out, it’s time to create all the smaller diamonds and triangles that make this art piece unique. You can use a ruler, but as I’m sure you can tell, I just free handed mine.
Then, start filling in each of the shapes one by one with your different paint colors. I just love how the bronze metallic paint added such dimension to the art work.
Once your paint has dried, slowly remove the washi tape.
I used a bronze foil paint and just love the reflective quality of it.
I am loving how this new colorful Abstract Diamond artwork turned out. I think it will soon have a new home in my office… but maybe first I will need to find a frame for it.
