A canvas and paint are all you need to make this modern art for pennies.
- Stretched art canvas
- Acrylic paint in three colors
- Paint roller
- Bucket and foam cup
Pick your paint colors. For a subtle look, choose a deep color for the background and two slightly more vibrant colors for the circles. Use a small paint roller to coat the canvas, including the sides. Add a second coat if needed. Let dry.
