Canvas art called ‘balance’

acrylic painted canvas
I made this yesterday afternoon while the kids were out with their dad for a few hours.

I have many blank canvases in the garage, in case I ever get the urge to try something with them. I wanted to try something with acrylic paint, just mixing a bunch of colors to see what happens.

After I completed painting the color I felt it wasn’t balanced right so that’s when I added in the lines and liked the idea of adding gold-tinted yarn.

I still thought it looked a little unbalanced and added two swirl shapes that I painted in gold and black. I added a little bit of shadowing to make them stand out.
