Mixed media on watercolor paper 18X24. This is the first abstract I've done in six months. Any and all comments welcome. Thanks for looking.

Jay,
I like this--very interesting composition. Wasn't sure how I felt about the white streaks. I think it might be better without them because the composition is very solid and would be better without them (in my humble opinion).

Thanks for the kind words. Maybe I went overboard with the white? I'll go back and cover it up to see what it looks like.

Yeah, the white streaks do not work. I stuck them in there at the time to cover the dull, mud like look of the paint. So onward I go to the next project.

THANKS!

jay :D

That's a good idea, Jay. Sometimes you just have to learn and move on rather than try and fix or you make a total mess of things.

The streaks are indeed a bit over-bearing; however, I feel the painting still works.

Thanks, Tamana I'm going to put this one away, and look at it again in a month, and see what I think.
