Painting With Softer Colors
I really love painting with bold colors like bright reds, dark blues and even yellow. So sometimes, it’s a stretch – or out of my comfort zone – to paint with softer, lighter colors. Many would say feminine colors, which I might agree with, but not necessarily so. Everyone’s tastes are different.
With this piece, I tasked myself with using colors I dont tend to gravitate to; namely pink and purple. I love gold and white, but the former, I haven’t used a whole lot of, comparatively speaking. But my wife and daughters and many friends like these colors and I thought it was high time I break my usual color schemes and try something different.
I wasn’t disappointed.
Scraped with Loops and Lines
One thing I love about abstract painting is that every piece – even using the same colors and techniques – comes out different each time. I used my typical scraping methods on this piece, and I love the results.
But one thing that I was not expecting were the little loopy undertones behind the top layers of paint. If you look in the pictures above, you can see the little loops of purple and pink that make this piece a little different than the other scraped pieces I’ve done.
What thrills me about this, is that no matter how many times I use a particular style, I tend to get different results. I don’t know about you, but to me, that’s pretty exciting.
Now all that’s left is for you decide if this pink and purple beauty will fit in your home. Am I right?
