Abstract Painting - Class #5 (Oct 18, 2012)

Updated: Nov 15, 2023

I walked out of class #5 having been introduced to the idea of creating "drama" and "boldness" with the brush and color. The idea is to have bold drama consistently throughout, to invite the eye and keep it interested. Now, that is the idea, which I found to be much easier said than done.....

The above image is a detail of a larger work in progress - according to my teacher, this shows exactly what is meant by "drama" and "boldness". The image below is the full painting, which shows what isn't there, what is missing throughout the rest of the piece..... I am now able to see the difference!
