1st Experimental Painting

I wanted to paint something out of my comfort zone, that is why I went for an abstract piece this time round. I had to learn how to simplify shapes from their original details and it was harder than I expected. Our eyes are trained to observe the tiniest details but not to see the subjects as a whole. I painted different kinds of textures to accentuate these details (angular and some cursive strokes). I also liked how the colours turned out, it feels as if he’s “underwater”.

  1. It may be out of your comfort zone but some of the paint handling in the background came be seen in the trees of your landscape. You do get some space on the left w the gray. It would have been nice to get a bit of shapes of “distance” in between all of the blues and greens on the left. You did let yourself loose!
