My Abstract Painting Process-Part 6
Well, we made it to the last video in this continuing series, Part 6. If you're still with me, thanks for watching and thanks for your support. I hope they have been helpful to you so far. (You can view Part 1 Here, Part 2 Here, Part 3 Here , Part 4 Here and Part 5 Here).
The students that take my workshops and online courses have seen this painting process many times, but it is probably new to most of you. I paint spontaneously with no pre-planning other than choosing a color combination from the color wheel to begin.
In this video I make adjustments based on an analysis of the painting. In the previous video I considered the painting to be complete, so I stopped working on it. After I stop working on a piece, I always take time to analyze it to see if any adjustments need to be made.
The adjustments here are minimal: add some light value to the centers of interest, make a slight shape adjustment on one of the dark value shapes, and work some lighter value areas a little more.
I take care of those small items, sign the painting and call it done!
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments about this process, I'd like to know what you think.
