How to draw a modular picture

For fans of painting and art, modular paintings are increasingly gaining popularity. You can’t imagine interior design without the use of decorative elements, various figurines, vases, paintings in elegant frames, and much more. Modular paintings, we can say turned the idea of a home picture gallery. So what is a modular picture?

Modular paintings are essentially a single image that is divided into several parts. Depending on how many parts are used, modular paintings can consist of two parts-a diptych, three-a triptych, and more-a half-triptych.

In order to draw a modular picture, you must first of all:

1) Determine how many parts the picture will consist of. The picture should fit well into the interior. You need to clearly imagine how your chosen pattern is combined in this interior. It is combined by color scheme, etc.

2) After you have decided on the image, now you need to split it into several parts. You can use any of the formats of the canvas. Try to organize the elements of the future modular picture as best as possible.

For these purposes, it is better to use some kind of photo editor. After that, you can order canvases with the desired size. When the canvases are ready, you can hang them on the wall, see what future elements will look like, and only then can you apply the selected image to the canvas.

3) you need to Draw all the elements of the modular picture at once. First, all the elements are sub-painted, the main background, then details are prescribed, etc. You need to draw all the details of the picture at the same time, but not first completely one, and then another.

4) currently, there are many companies that are engaged in the production of modular paintings. When creating a picture, use photo printing, if the picture is printed by a good printer, then at first glance it is sometimes even difficult to distinguish between manual work or photo printing.

One of the distinctive features of modular paintings is that they do not require placing in a baguette. Abstraction looks great on such paintings, with both a separate element and the picture as a whole.
