This artist demonstrates how to create from your mind an abstract painting. This one is titled ‘A Tale Behind The Mirror’ and is a collision of drips, drizzles and earthy tones but still capturing the image of a young lady and a building which is obviously open to your own interpretation. The artist uses brushes and sponging techniques to create his desired abstract painting. It’s hard to say but I would have a guess at acrylics being the medium used in this piece. Definitely worth a watch just to see how inspiration can come deep from thought
This fast paced sped up video of artist Lindsey Cormier shows quite nicely how there are no actual limits to an abstract piece. It all depends on the artist’s interpretation and when they deem it is time to put a lid on their masterpiece. I particularly like the colors used in this circular abstract painting and think that any beginner or intermediate painter would be well within there confines to take something similar to this on.
This is a sped up video demonstrating Zaman Jassim’s skills as she delivers a very exciting, fresh and contemporary piece of Abstract art using a great fusion of colors using a fresh palette. Acrylic paints have been used throughout this time lapsed abstract painting demo, but it is the size of the canvas which makes the final result so capturing.
Starting with a thin flat artist’s paint brush Jassim draws a rough horizontal and vertical line through the centre of the canvas to act as a marker for the remainder of his abstract piece. A fusion of oranges, yellows and violets are his intial colors which he applies with a 3 inch paint brush in a ‘block in’ styles which isn’t strictly governed by rules, and instead takes on a more natural and organic feel.
He works from the centre of the canvas displying more intricacies and finer detailing at this point whereas the outside colors are used as more of a wash to retain the focal point within the middle of the abstract painting. The continual use of the smaller brush is used in a manner which shows intention and thought within his work but it is the introduction of the scraper tool which compliments the brushwork to create some stunning transparent effects.
In abstract art anything is possible and from this video I would say that Jassim prefers to keep his work loose, fluid, colorful but yet all with a sense of containment and visual effects which are very pleasing to the eye. The entire 1.5mx1.5m canvas is filled and the result is an extremely competent example of how I think an abstract art piece should look.
