Serious Art: Part 3

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I’ve been working within a limited genre of abstract painting in order to strengthen my voice and body of work. Below is the next picture in this process.

I started by painting a lot of shapes using a limited palette of white, black, yellow ochre, gold, and alizarin crimson. At this point I step back and try to edit. As I’ve said before, I have a tendency to introduce too many shapes and too many of the same size. Below is what I accomplished.

This is already so much better. Less busy, better composition, palette, and variation of shapes. Again I use DrawCast in my editing process. I continue this process and finally I get the result below.

This painting is 11″ by14″ and titled “Pot of Gold”. This is mainly acrylic but I’ve added some tissue paper and pen. So it’s a mixed media. It is looking for a good home and could be yours for $175.00.

I do believe this process has made my work more cohesive and stronger. As always if you have questions or comments you can go to my contact page. Thanks for your support.
