IThis is why I enjoy doing abstract art with acrylics I started this painting because I liked the color, I painted the whole canvas this shade of peach. Then I started adding some spraying water and pushing the paint in different directions. I then decided I wanted to add some more colors: pale yellow, white, gold metallic and a small amount of silver by just poring some of these colors and moving the canvas around to let it flow at will, I proceeded to use a fine line of dark grey to define some of the colors added. I then just stood back and looked to see what shapes had arose from this process, And I saw the face, it looks like a child looking out in the distance. I then decided she had to be looking at something so I added the gulls, children love to watch birds and added one just to her side to draw attention to her face. This is the process I use many times to do abstracts, color, making it flow, then see what appears and emphasize that area. If you have any questions or comments please respond to me.
I love to paint and talk about art by Karen Johnson
