Re: Another set of two abstracts

The splotches of colour create a wonderful soft pattern for both of these.

If I had to crit anything it would be that the second one echos the first one perhaps too much.

Re: Another set of two abstracts

Chaya, these will make a beautiful pair of painting on any wall. Very nice work and the bright colors really speak volumes in the overall quiet mood of the pieces.

Re: Another set of two abstracts

Katie, Thank you and agree with you completely that the second one mimics the first a lot. I will try to keep that in mind when I make the next set of twos I guess these are somewhat like identical twins ?

Anthony, Thank you so much!

They are well done. I think the texture suggests a lot of energy but the color choices restrain that energy. Interesting.

Re: Another set of two abstracts

Great warm color. It reminds me of a technique I learned about years ago called tonking, where a piece of paper or a cloth is pressed against wet paint and then removed and reapplied to cause the soft blends. Sponges work too.

Re: Another set of two abstracts

Since they are a set, similarities seem to be the right idea. I love the soft colors and can actually feel the texture just through the way the light plays across the surface. Nice job Chaya.
The first has a little bit better balance, while the second seems a little top heavy. Maybe you can add some visual balance to the second that would also serve to differentiate them more? That’s the only suggestion I can think of because these are lovely as is.

Both are calming influences and agree with others remarks.

Re: Another set of two abstracts

Thank you all for your wonderful comments, thoughts and suggestions! Much appreciate it!

Christopher, I used "scraping" technique here for this work. I'm attaching a closeup. I'll have to lookup "tonking"

Re: Another set of two abstracts

Somewhere I saw two paintings attached together, back to back, and hung from the ceiling. The breezes kept them gently moving.
The effect was quite interesting, giving the viewer a constant variety.

I see these done that way, rather than the usual side by side.

Like children, each one is different, but special

good Art!
