What the hell is Decorative Painting?
Decorative painting has been present in our lives for centuries. It is basically the embellishment of objects with drawings, patterns and symbols. The logic was: since it does not move, why not paint on it, giving it a new life. Today, though, this art has evolved from paintings on immovable objects to any kind of surfaces. And for sure, a professional painter is considered an artist, since he/she practices this art.
Let your wall speak
It is not illegal to not choose a uniform/plain colour for your walls. Nowadays, there are various ways that walls can be embellished. And the one thing in vogue right now is drawing words on walls. Words or short sentences like ”Family”, ”Love”, ”Peace” or ”Freedom” and quotes from one’s favourite author or poet in the bedroom or living room can give your interior a unique look.
Decorative painting sketches and patterns on walls
Sketches and drawings on the walls are becoming more and more popular today. Whether it is a single tree or the drawing of a whole jungle, a true artist can satisfy your requirements.

Other artists can also do portraits of someone you are attached to or embellish your heart with a drawing of all your family members.
