Abstract Painting Process-Part 5

Abstract Painting Process-Part 5

In Part 5, I begin to tie all parts of the composition together by adjusting colors, values and shapes. You can view Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.

I want to emphasize that this painting is painted wet into wet and none of the paint is allowed to dry. It is NOT painted in multiple layers.

I begin by tying together my dark value shapes and also continue to work the edges between shapes for seamless transitions. I add light value yellow-green near my centers of interest to help them pop even more. I continue to adjust shapes, values and colors until I come to a stopping point where I know that I need to take time to analyze what I have done and make final corrections. In the final video, Part 6, I will make those corrections and complete the painting with my signature - stay tuned!
