Abstract Colour - How To Use It - Articles Surfing
Producing an abstract is NOT an easy thing to do. While applying pigment to ground may not take very long - coming up with the image itself can be a far more time consuming activity.
So I am going to briefly look into one aspect of abstract work - the use of colour ... as part of the abstract progression.
Let us break down the constituent parts of utilizing colour.
Hue and colour combination
With all these "try-outs" see how the colours vary if you try increasing (or decreasing) the area of one colour. Different textures will also add another "colour".
When it comes to applying the paint, be fearless and bold - even while you produce something delicate.
Finally, here is a piece of advice I was given many years ago, and have never forgotten: Whenever you experiment like this be sure to always complete what you have started - even if it is a simple exercise. And if you truly want to succeed then you must always be painting - when you are ill - paint, when you are angry, sad, frustrated - paint, and when you simply do not feel like painting - then that is the one time you should paint. Never stop yourself painting. If you do not stop yourself then there WILL come a time when you find that you cannot STOP painting! ...A painters paradise!!
