You may be asking, “How can I create abstract paintings?” If you are accustomed to painting realistic scenes, it may be overwhelming at first. Start by scribbling on a piece of paper to get a feel for what your painting will look like. Be spontaneous – don’t stop moving your pen or making marks. Try not to over-think it, as you’ll end up making more mistakes in the end.
Paintbrushes: Try to find one that is the same size and color as your wall. A wide brush can make it look like a textured surface. The paintbrush and palette knife should be sized appropriately. A plastic scraper can be helpful for creating an open surface. Another technique involves spraying paint onto a second sheet of paper. The excess paint can be printed off. This is a more exciting technique than a traditional painting.
Observe your paintings: They may take unexpected turns. You may feel like giving up, but sometimes the paintings that are the most difficult are the most beautiful. For inspiration and ideas, try checking out a few articles in Artists & Illustrators. By reading articles and referring to examples, you can learn from other artists’ works and incorporate them into your own work. If you’re really stuck, consider consulting an art magazine for advice.
Creating abstract paintings is a personal journey. It requires a unique vocabulary and expression. You must develop your brushwork, colors, and expressive gestures to express your vision. Without personal vision, you’re likely to end up replicating someone else’s work. Ultimately, abstract paintings are a reflection of your life and your personal vision. They will appeal to people for hours and may even inspire them to purchase a piece of art they love.
