You know, trying to learn to paint abstracts is so different from any other kind of painting. Usually, you have a photo or idea to paint from, and the painting actually looks like something that you've seen in real life!
I've been spending a lot of time looking in books and online at abstract paintings. I love seeing what different artists have done. But, of course, I don't want to copy anyone else's work - so I've been thinking of what I could do that would be different. Not having much luck in this!
So, here we are! This started out with an idea of dripping paint in all directions on this canvas. After looking at it for awhile, I started out applying darks - and soon, it took on a life of it's own. I can't say that I'm happy with the way it turned out, but I did enjoy the process. I'll always be searching for the "just right" technique that will be uniquely mine!
