Abstract Painting Process-Part 6

Abstract Painting Process-Part 6

In Part 6, I analyze the painting. Once I know what I need to do to complete it, I get to work making final adjustments to the composition by modifying colors, values and shapes. You can view Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.

Here's my analysis:

  • On the upper right main center of interest, I need to add a bit of lighter value green to change the shape and transition from the green to the pink.
  • I took a black and white photo of the painting to check my values and found I needed more dark middle value. I have determined I need to add it in the middle of the painting to further strengthen the tie between the dark value shapes.
  • The two bottom pink centers of interest are too much the same size, so I will modify the one on the right to make it smaller and more linear in shape.

I make the changes and am satisfied that is all I need to complete the painting. I add my signature and call it done. Thanks for watching the process, and I hope it was helpful for you.
