Paths, small abstract on paper

PATHS (2017)

paths600

Acrylic painting, 10″ x 8″.

I had used all my canvases up and noticed I still had an 8 x 10 inch medium surface drawing pad lying around. Seven abstract paintings later and I love it. The paper is of nice quality and I think the delicacy of it adds something to the paintings. This is called Paths because I see a reddish figure standing in the middle, then all the paths and choices swirling around them.

Half a Face

HALF A FACE (2017)

Acrylic painting, 11″ x 14″.

Another abstract on canvas panel. You can see with the rougher surface how the lighter amounts of paint stand out on almost individual dots or squares of the surface. I like the contrast of this with solid bright clean brush strokes. I see half a head with an ear in the orange on the right, hence the title. 

Untitled, another abstract

UNTITLED (2017)

untit600

Acrylic painting, 12″ x 16″.

This is on canvas panel which is an interesting surface to paint on. It’s relatively heavy and sturdy which is good for me, because I paint on the floor without an easel or anything to hold the painting still. The surface isn’t as nice as a more expensive version of canvas, but it’s fun to paint on a slightly rougher surface and see how the paint responds.
