Abstract takeover


so my son (almost 5) wanted to use "my" colors and I let him though I knew he was already tired. Consequently, he lost interest after the first minutes, rubbing some colors here and there.

Finishing what you begin is a major topic amongst us these days, but we could agree on me working the image to its completion. I guess that makes this piece collaborative... well, he said he likes the overall result.

Let me know what you think, thanks for looking.

Re: Abstract takeover

Cool way to start an artwork. Definitely some neat textures in there. I like the little light circles—how did you get those? I find the dark blue and sepia mass a little overwhelming, but eh.

Re: Abstract takeover

I like it. I'm seeing a night time landscape in there but am not sure if it's intended. There are a few interesting alternative crops as well.

Re: Abstract takeover

I love it - makes me feel like I'm in a different universe and there are creatures inhabiting it. This is the approach I take to my abstracts. My 6 year old son and I did a collaboration a while back...this makes me want to post that too. Anyone with kids, I recommend doing collaborations with them - you work with chaos and unexpected things happen. It's super fun, even with kids (like my son) who don't necessarily like to do art all that often.

Re: Abstract takeover

Daniel, I really admire this collaborative effort, and what a smart way to start an abstract letting a child have a go. Since I don't have any may borrow my nephew's sons who are both very creative. I do enjoy your linear effects and the textures you have within it.

Re: Abstract takeover

I like the collaborative work. I've been wanting to do this with my teenage son, although he has no interest! I like the textures and colors..so well balanced. A very very interesting piece indeed!

Re: Abstract takeover

Pretty cohesive considering the tiredness of one of the collaborators.
