Progressive Painting

Progressive Painting, Close up, stage 1

 

Acrylic painting and abstracts are not my artistic strong points, so, I decided to start a painting for practice. This a progressive painting because it will be progressively changing until I am satisfied with it. I wanted to focus on the composition, colors, and textures in the piece more than the end result.

To complete stage one of the painting, I added light acrylic medium to my board to create texture. I then used very thin acrylic paint and used it like watercolor on my surface. I was satisfied with the colors, but the texture was too distracting when looking at the entire piece. This painting also turned out too representational, something I still need to work on! Let me know what you think and feel free to leave suggestions.
