Abstract Painting

Inspired by Austin Kleon’s Show Your Work, I documented the process for my 20×20 painting. While I sorted through my life’s direction (#emo), this was an experimental piece where I explored different techniques including using blue tape, mixing colors, adding textures, and adding a splatter effect.

1. Materials, say hello!

2. Made some triangles with blue tape and played around with mixing colors.abstract 2

4. Wait for triangles to dry and then add light background colors with diluted paints.

5. Fill in spaces with extra paint and then use back of paintbrush to create different textures.
