What Can You Draw On Your Wall?

Well that's a good question that has the easiest answer, you can draw anything you want to with the right imagination and mindset of creating a drawing, just go for it, drawing on your wall may have been something you used to do as kids and all they would have been was smiley faces or scribbles that appeared child like with no real focus as to what you could achieve.

There are many things you can draw on walls and graffitti is a good example, although you generally may use spray cans to get the bulk of the art on the wall, but for art murals of some kind you can use drawing to get most of your ideas on the wall before you do decide to paint with colour, but if you are inexperienced you may opt to plan well on paper your intended design first, so as to have a clear image in mind.

As I said you can draw anything that you want, from a cartoon character to a real life scene you photographed whilst on holiday or a totally invented fantasy art piece that spreads right across all four walls in your room.

Art murals are nothing new, as past artists have been commissioned to create masterpieces that some still exist to this day on ceilings and walls of landmark buildings, even recent artists create inspired art murals on brick walls after a really good painting of white undercoat paint, but still the question remains, What can YOU draw on YOUR wall?

First you need to really pin down what you like in terms of art and what you would want to be on your wall, because you'll be seeing it everyday, so your drawing could start off being from your favourite interests;

  • Your favourite tv program - characters
  • Favourite films - characters and inspirations
  • Books and comics - more characters
  • Photos you took - holiday snaps etc
  • Inspired by someone elses art

The artistic choice is yours and as ever it should be fun to draw and create something on your wall space that will last almost forever or at least as long as your house stays up.

The art you can create on your wall is filled with many possibilities and why ty and do what everyone else does on their wall when you can create something that is so unique that you can just be confident that no one else will have the same wall art as you.

To draw something on your wall, there are some great things to consider drawing on it, like drawing a fairy, which would be perfect for a little girls bedroom, especially if you plan on painting the fairy and then adding all manner of other fantasy elements that could be associated with a fantasy fairy, such as big red mushrooms and huge fantasy trees.

Additionally, there are many other ideas you can use to draw some cool stuff on kids bedroom walls and you can find some drawing inspiration in my many fantasy drawing tutorials here

Yes this Gimp is great for manipulating photos and cleaning up areas too and adding allsorts of other effects, but as ever there is a learning curve that comes with such software.

Cheers Nancy and Ethel!
