This is my first ever abstract , after being confused as to what to paint,I was tweaked by a friend who suggested I should try an abstract ,I gladly obliged.
My first attempt left me confused , frustrated and annoyed at my seemingly lack of creativity. I repainted the canvas and turned it into my Jumpled Elephant painting.
A new canvas and with a fresh mind , I thought of nothing but how I was feeling , I mixed up colors with my hands and used my fingers instead of brushes , I splattered gold paint on and smiled at the formation as the blobs landed on the canvas.
I noticed all my paintings seem to be born with the same colors , this is fine by me and represents my inner feelings.
I finished the painting and firstly sent it to my friend awaiting their critique............I felt confident they would like it , enjoying the feeling of anticipation and waiting . I was right ............thanks for the tweak!!
love it - :>)
There is a magic in expressive abstract art,it can only be what it is,it nearly always represents the artist and their feelings at the time of painting, As a medium it is used in therapy of many kinds because it allows an interpretation of the inner self through composition and colour choices. Your first work is in my opinion a strong and bold creation,it explodes with the excitement and exploration of new parenthood or first love. I look forward to the development of your works in future.
Thanks again Stephen
It is always lovely to hear someones opinion , it makes me see the painting in a different light , however I am pleased with your description and I humbly agree with you..................
Thank you for taking time to comment.....:)
Yes I agree ....about signature colours.
I think I may go against the grain next time and use colours I would not normally use and see what happens !!
