View Full Version : Visions...latest abstract

09-10-2003, 08:51 PM
Since posting 3 new pieces a couple of weeks ago on the forum I have not had the time to paint anything new until this afternoon.

The previous pieces were quite geometric with lot's of horizontals and verticals. With this piece I wanted to avoid the geometrical shapes and concentrate on simple brushstrokeswith variations in hue, value and saturation.

The painting is an 18X24 acrylic on hot press 140 lb watercolor paper.

Beautiful colors, love your technique.
I like all of the small skinny brushstrokes.
Do you like painting on paper better than board or canvas?
Can you varnish over the paper, or do you just frame under glass?

I rarely paint on canvas. All of my landscapes are on masonite. Painting on hot press paper feels the same as masonite. However, the paper will "stain" when I use transparent washes which produces a lot of interesting textures and shapes that I do not get when painting on board.

One of my clients wants some landscapes on paper. Should be interestiing. I suspect that I will find that some very different textures will appear quite unexpectedly.

I use a clear acrylic coating over the paper. The pieces would need to be framed under glass.

Thanks for all the comments.

This is so beautifully layered. I love your pallette choice. It works well for me and seems well balanced.

Very nice work and wonderful colors. That bit of orange and the light blue is great.

Very nice, reminds me of the work of Kandinsky

Thanks again for the additional comments.

As usual I'm amazed at the diversity of viewer impressions. Being new to abstract painting I've learned that this diversity is what makes abstract painting so interesting. I'm much more accustomed to painting landscapes which do not produce such a wide range of perceptions.

I keep looking at it sideways where I see a man carrying a sheaf of wheat on his shoulders. Very energetic painting whichever way you look. :)
