This work is in mixed media on paper. I applied colors on wet paper using diluted acrylics and watercolors over gesso. I ran a comb in various directions and added some accent colors when the work was dried.This work has a couple of buddies that will be posted also.
I am beginning to get really into abstracts. I combined these two paintings . I posted the one on the left by itself, but when my teacher came up yesterday, he suggested the two go together and that I float them on the mat as he liked the edges. Glad my blog visitors are liking my abstracts. I have found my niche in art. Am having a lot of fun with these new pieces. Out of the 50 I did, about 30 worked out so far and I will be posting them.What joy.
This is a 15x22 watercolor. Again I used the pouring and wet in wet techniques. I departed somewhat from my usual colors, put liked the ones I got. I combined opaques and transparents and enjoyed the pleasing way in which the water moved the paint.
I have been super busy among other things painting. My teacher and friend challenged me to go altogether non-objective and do as many paintings as possible. I completed 50 in a little over a week. It is amazing what one can come up with. Most of the pieces were done wet into wet and pouring. This painting is one of them. It is a 16x20 done in watercolors only.
I was awarded the Sunshine Award by a fellow artist, Ann Rogers. It was so graceful of her and I shall pass it to others. The artists receiving the Sunshine awards are: Kim Conrad Autumn Liz Blu Gary Dominique
I love to paint and try to do so every day. I am having immense fun blogging. I love being in touch with so many good artists and seing their art. I learn a lot about painting this way. I especially enjoy participating in the challenges.
