I’m still confused by Abstract Art. To me it either looks like a load of paint just thrown on to a canvas which in some cases it is ….. but others are more considered with shapes and colours where I suppose the artist has taken their time placing the paint on to the canvas.
I thought I would have a go at my own abstract art to see if it helped.
I used acrylics on a piece of watercolour paper 14 x 20 inches applied with an old credit card for this:-
Next I tried using oils on a 12 x 16 inch canvas using a palette knife:-
I’m pleased with both paintings but I prefer using the oils, you can blend the colours better .
I thought that I was just putting the colours on to the canvas in a pleasing pattern of colours but have I inadvertently painted an abstract impression of ‘reflections’ in oils :).
