Up Tempo


Acrylic on Cardstock

Using left-over palette paint, this combines a few techniques, including dragging and knife application. A recent observer remarked that they liked the vibrant colors in the abstracts I do in this style, and I realized one of the reasons for this is that for the backgrounds, I use a lot of mixed puddles, but for the foreground, I use a lot of colors that have not been mixed. Also, since these are quick and the paint is very wet, I don't do any blending.

The other reason for that is that you are talented artist, sometime you will admit it))
I love this abstract so full of joy, freshness and movement.
