Re: Compositions in Semi abstract & Abstract Art

Thanks, Dayakar - love your work and your explanations - they are a big help.

I noticed people in the abstract forum talking about push/pull and a place for your eye to rest (ie avoiding making the piece too "busy"). Do you think about those things, too, when doing your work?

Thanks

Julia

Re: Compositions in Semi abstract & Abstract Art

Julia...Thanks for your appreciation .

'Push, pull, eye to rest....all these words are parts of elements and principles of Composition of Design. sometimes artists and art students use different names for these things. Without using these elements and principles you will never be able to plan a painting properly.
once you understand D & C , you will work with them without conscious effort.

Re: Compositions in Semi abstract & Abstract Art

Julia..I am adding some more.

Understanding elements and principles of Composition & Design is very important.But many artists ...who has written books on Composition & Design are not learaners friendly. They did not make things simple. instead of this they made them complex. I read many books to understand them. If you don't understand them properly, you will be in life time confusion.

For example...Pull, Push, Eye to rest...very difficult terms to know. You can use them in many ways.In three dimensional realistic paintings, Modern art or Abstract art, whatever it is... their presence is must. Notonly these ...there are many other things which art students must know.

Read many books on them.Work with them inceasently. Then only you will know what is Design & Composition. I don't think there are many artists who know about Composition & Design truly.

Try your self.

Re: Compositions in Semi abstract & Abstract Art

I too love color, color, color!, Although, I still struggle getting enough light in my watercolor paintings. I love your description of what light and color mean to you too. Thanks for a lovely afternoon viewing your beautiful artwork.

Re: Compositions in Semi abstract & Abstract Art

"I won't paint things. I play with colors and composition like how children play their games without bothering about other's likes and dislikes. when I play with colors and composition, they may look like things you know." Hi there I've been enjoying your postings on abstract art (which is new to me). I'm trying to learn this style. I've quoted you above as I don't understand what you mean by this, Do you mean that the painting at the top with the ship in the ocean wasn't planned, that you weren't trying to paint anything it just happened? Hope my question isn't too basic. Thanks
