Still working on a small scale on watercolour abstracts. I feel happy with the warmth and layers in this example. I feel they might lead to something in larger dimensions, but I think they work in their own right.
Maiy darker tones were used in this abstract, which gave a luminosity to the lighter parts
Still trying to learn from making abstracts - this time not using floral colours to start, and trying to vary the rhythm.
An abstract (?) that reflects the shapes and colours of the tulips painted a couple of days ago.
Flower study on a bright morning
Still taking fifteen minutes per day to paint freely and on a small scale.
There is an almost calligraphic feel when preparing to make these abstracts, and in the painting process itself. I hope that brings vitality to the finished image. This was again rather larger than than earlier studies.
Unlike recent watercolours posts, this is not small-scale, and it was not a rapid exercise. Clearly it is expressionist, and painted with a compelling energy. I would be very interested in reactions - either positive, or less so.
