Many people often ask me about the process of creating artwork. In fact, the most FAQ regarding artwork is "so, how long did that take you to paint"? In an earlier blog I point out the complications of answering such a questions. Click HERE to read that installment. This blog is simply visual. This is the visual journey of creating a new abstract work: 40" x 40" Acrylic on Canvas.
First, I begin by creating a study--in this case, a 10 x 10 acrylic on panel.
Step One: Determine the primary hirzontal line:
Step Two: Block in Underpainting
Step Three: Differentiate the coloring / add warm tones
Step Four: Begin differentiating brushstrokes & filling in gaps in coverage.
Step Five: Work details, adjust color tempurture, tease out the more interesting interactions.
This painting was completed mostly with Golden Fluid Acrylics, which I enjoy for their quick applications and fast drying times.
