This is the first set of abstract paintings that I have done in months and I wanted to kick things off with number 109. I'm going to reorganize the abstract painting series into a numerical sequence and really see what I can do to enhance the ones that are out there. It makes sense to offer these for download and for purchase on Society6 and Fine Art America, but don't worry--they're still here and they'll all be available.
This is an older painting, and I've renamed and renumbered it. What stands out to me is that this is one of the few that I've done on watercolor paper that really turned out nice in that you can see the three dimensional aspects of the painting.
This is the original, almost completely untouched version of the abstract bird painting that I did earlier this month. It has sat on the desktop, neglected and waiting for the right moment to appear. Why not on the first day of August?
Here are two more versions of the same painting.
Abstract 141 is 9x12" on canvas board.
I have a fairly large number of abstracts to publish in the weeks ahead. I have a number of them on canvas board but most of them are on watercolor paper that I'm trying to use up because it has been sitting here for years.
Abstract 140 is 9x12" on canvas board.
Abstract 126 has a few layers too it, most of them happy ones.
Abstract 124 is a continuation on the themes of the previous series, only blurrier and more purple.
I can't even figure out why this one came out like it did. Easily one of the more vivid abstracts of the whole batch.
It looks like a riot of colors, and much of this got away from me before I could bring it under control. Then I let the thing go and it got even crazier before I had to run away.
Abstract 121 is the start of a new series of abstract paintings for the month of May, 2016.
Abstract painting. Tempera paints on canvas board, 2016.
I used an infrared effect here, and then I just rendered the whole thing black and white because I liked the texture.
