I came across this nice challenge blog called scrapki wyzwaniowo and this month they have a challenge - 'abstract art and no flowers'.
Abstract art (done with vibrant colours especially) has a special place in my heart already from my teen years ... and I can do well without flowers!;) And what a coincidence - I got the feeling of doing some abstract art a few days ago ... !
I used a small 3D canvas - 12 x 10 inches. I added a little bit of Flexible Modeling Paste with the painting knife for the underneath texture beforehand. I didn't limit myself with acrylic paints and Matte Gel Medium only but other than Liquitex Soft Body Acrylics [and some Tulip Slick Paints, Americana DECOR Chalky Finish Paint and ARTISTE Acrylic Paints too] I also used String Gel Medium and Cosmic Shimmer Clear, Midnight Black and Gunmetal Texture Paste (the last two gave some nice sparkly touches).
I used mostly my painting knives. Took a help from Polka Dots Mask too in one place. And can you see that I am loving my (Liquitex) Splatter Brush too!;)
Many people don't get abstract art and for them it's just a puddle of scribbles and paint splashes. But put that aside and instead try to see what the painting 'tells you', learn it's language - let the painting speak!!!
My painting is called - 'Keep going'.
Thanks a million for popping by,
