Varying degrees of abstraction can add greatly to the impact of a painting by encouraging the viewer to observe and interpret suggested details. When our paintings are based on a specific subject there is often a tendency to rely too heavily on what we see. Sometimes it is good to step back and ask ourselves just how much reliance on what we are seeing is really needed to express what we are feeling.
Fabulous article and a great lesson. Thank you 😊
These latest two posts have me seriously contemplating starting water color and giving my oils a rest. Thank you
