This is the first piece I've done in abstract, and one of the funnest pieces ever! It's acrylic on canvas that is a little larger than 18 x 20 and I used sand with the acrylic. Enjoy :) I sure did

yes you could get in alot of trouble lol but it would be worth it for the money lol.only one suggestion make the painting bigger next time mark rothko was known to paint on huge canvas around 80x90

Yes, yes, very classical abstract composition.

If you really want to go Rothko, go big, and isolate your strata. Of course, you would need to key down your acrylics and paint on thick supports.

Then, once you've got a handle on that, darken your palette and get REALLY big with 12' x 20' canvases.

Good luck.

As soon as you said sand I felt the flow of the tide and the waves.
Reflecting the glow of the setting sun.
Wonderful abstract. :)

:) Thanks everyone. . . I wonder how much those big canvases cost, or where you would even find them. I'de probably have to paint outside, I wouldn't be able to get them through the door!
