Hello! Thank you for checking in with me!
I have been a painting machine this past week! So many ideas, all in bright bold colors in contemporary art. My Abstract Art classes have really helped me loosen up my strokes, and therefore a new style has emerged!
The first painting I completed, began last week born out of inspiration from my Ireland and Scotland trip. It is 18x24 acrylic on board. The fields are so beautiful there and the hills beyond, equally so. I had to stop myself from putting sheep in this one! Rolling green hills, patches of wildflowers and tall grasses in beautiful shades of green. Giant light green flowers invite you into this piece. A stream wanders through, flanked by a carpet of flowers, leading up to the base of the mountains. The blue mountains meet the pink sunset sky, leaving you to wonder what is beyond.
The second Painting is a floral abstract. 18x24 acrylic on board. Bold color and in contemporary style. I started with greens, lots of different greens, my favorite color! I added blues for water and then a few reflections. The flowers came next and I chose to keep them somewhat loose and free. I added tendril’s, stalks and other grasses. I stepped back a lot in this piece to make sure it was not getting too detailed! It was fun to paint and to just let go of the rules!
Thank you for reading and supporting my work!
