Hello my friends! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I put the finishing touches on a new abstract painting this morning.
12" x 12"
Fluid and Heavy Body Acrylic on Canvas Paper
I started this one with an underpainting in a variety of yellow hues.
To set up the composition, I tore pieces of newspaper and worked them into a pleasing arrangement.
When I was satisfied with the placement of the elements, I lightly traced around them with a pastel pencil.
I began blocking in areas of blues, yellows and white.
I varied the mixes of each hue to create contrast. To unify the elements, I blended each one with color from another.
Finally, I enhanced the lightest and darkest values and added linework to the deepest areas.
Well, I'm off to look for new inspiration and take in the sunshine of this beautiful day. Have a wonderful weekend!
Until next time,
