Paint a rainbow abstract painting on a heart shaped canvas

Grab your paint brushes and create something from the heart with this abstract rainbow project. In this video, we’ll be showing you how to paint a rainbow abstract painting on a heart shaped canvas. This heart can be given as a beautiful gift or hung up to brighten a room in the home.

Begin by squeezing one of each warm colour from the set, onto the middle half of the canvas (start with the yellow, orange, red and pink).

Then add cool colours (purple, blue and green).
