DIY Geometric Pattern Painting

January 17, 2023

A painting with three sections of patterns.

Hi there! I created this geometric painting with patterns a few weeks ago and I love how it turned out. I'm also going to show you how to make a similar one!

It has a few three different patterns in three sections. The top section has strawberries, the middle section has cow spots, and the bottom has a pink and white checkerboard.

You don't have to use the same patterns as me. You can create as many sections of patterns that you want and each pattern can be whatever you would like it to be.

If you would like you can watch the video below or read on to learn how to make a similar painting to mine.

You will need:

Acrylic paint

Creating The Sections

You want to start by sectioning off a canvas of any size into three or more sections by taking a ruler and making a line with a pencil. Then you want to add another line next to each line to create a thin borders between each section.

The size of my canvas is 11 x 14 inches but you can use a any sized canvas.

Creating The Patterns

When you're done making your sections, you can start creating your patterns with pencil and then you can paint them in.  I'll be showing you how I made each of the patterns that I made for my canvas but you can create any pattern you would like.

The first pattern I created was a checkerboard and I measured out each row with a pencil and a ruler.

If you make a checkerboard. you can make each row any size that you want. For mine each square measured about 1 x 1 inches. I used the width of the ruler to help me create each row by tracing it.

For the next section, I drew cow spots and for the last section I painted it pink so it's dry by the time I get to it to draw strawberries over it.

When I was done drawing and painting, I painted the squares of the checkerboard pink and white. 

After I was done with the checkerboard, I went back to the pink section and drew the shape of strawberries in different directions. Also I drew some of the strawberries going over the edge of the canvas.

When I was done drawing the strawberries I painted them red and waited for them to dry.

Once the red paint was dry, I drew and painted the leaves for the strawberries. Then I took a pencil with yellow paint on it and created the seeds of the strawberries.

Once I was done painting the strawberries, I painted the cow spots with black paint and waited for it to dry before I painted the parts of this sections that's not cow spots with white paint.

Finishing Up The Canvas

When your done with your painting and when the paint is dry, you want to paint the border with white or another color of paint so the border looks even and better. You can even paint it thicker if you want.

The last step you can do is erase any erase pencil markings after the paint is dry and then you're all done.

Final Look & Thoughts

That's how you make this painting!

I love how my painting turned and I also love how customizable it is.

What do you think about this painting and will you be making one?
