First abstract in acrylic

abstract painting in acrylic medium
After a few years of gingerly exploring acrylics in various styles (realistic, impressionistic, you name it), this week I created my first abstract. The beauty of acrylics is you have the chance to start over again when a painting goes real wrong. I was working on a knife painted impasto version of an urban landscape that became muddy and dull. After putting it away for a few weeks, I pulled it out and was impressed by the textures and decided to use the paper for an abstract makeover. Here is the result.

Rising Tide, Acrylic on 300lb watercolor paper, 10"X14", $125.00 (unframed)
