Canvas is a cotton fabric being used for painting art and portraits for years. Paintings can set a complete tone of a room. Depending on the tone of the painting and style in which it is painted, paintings represent different emotions; peacefulness, fun, fury, sadness etc. One should always choose the theme, color scheme, tone etc. of a painting after deciding where it will be hung.
One way of choosing canvas art can be that you buy the canvas art and then design your whole room around it. But usually it is the other way round; people design the room and then buy the art. The advantage of canvas art is that one cannot tell whether the painting is original or replica. One should always keep the following things in mind when shopping for canvas art for home.
First of all color scheme should be well thought out as the color selections should be in contrast with colors of your room. For example if your room already has bright colors and gives a busy look than go for a subtle canvas art. On the other hand if the room is dull than you can make it lively by going for canvas prints with bright colors. Also ensure that the painting goes with the theme of your room. For example if your room is decorated in Asian theme than don’t hang an island canvas print in it.
Another factor to be kept in mind is the size of the canvas art; it shouldn’t be too big to take up all the space and it shouldn’t be too small either that it feels out of place. Canvas art can be made in panels as well aside from traditional horizontal and rectangular ones. Panels break the design, and hence give a very lively look to the painting. If you don’t like any canvas art then you can always paint your own, as nothing can beat a master-piece.
