Names on small canvases

On small canvases measuring 7x7cm, we painted some names with acrylic colours to make little square  paintings to give to friends. This is a good exercise to learn how to use brushes on small size, to invent new textures and to find color combinations enjoyable and effective. It can also be useful to work on complementary colors, because to make a word visible on a colored background, you have to understand the relationships between colors.
