I was so happy with the new fancy hand-painted backdrop I bought recently, that I was inspired to give it a try for myself. See if I could make myself some more unique backgrounds for my photo shoots. I picked up some painters’ drop canvases to paint on, and kept my eye on the mistint section in the paint stores nearby. I was surprised by some of the wonderful colour combos I found with only a few visits to the paint stores. I hauled all of this (5 gallons of paint and three canvases) onto the ferry and over to the Sunshine Coast so I could enlist the help of my artist Dad. Luckily we had a nice day so we set up on the deck and had some painting fun outside. I’ll be interested to see how they photograph. Below is a little video of us making these backdroppies.
