A few weeks ago I made a post titled Abstract Painting Inspiration and it explained the beginning of my process with this painting.
So I have worked on this painting off and on for about 3 months and it’s one of my favorite pieces I have made this semester. The first picture is where I left off with my last post.
In the second picture you can see I started creating new shapes and changing a few colors. I was able to take out the things that were bothering me. In the third picture I was starting to use oil paint for some of the shapes and lines. This was a very slow process believe it or not. Each decision I made was for a reason. I was experimenting with washes of color over top of other colors and I am really pleased with the effects it gives.
This is the finished piece hanging in the Kresge Gallery here at Marywood. The show was up last week for my painting class.
