Finalizing Last Canvas in a Series of Abstract Paintings

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

While each and every canvas is a single project for me, I usually work on a group of eight abstract paintings at a time.  They may all follow a similar style or theme, or not.  But I feel a sense of satisfaction when I've finished the 8th canvas.  Then I photograph them all and put them on my art website.

 Here is number eight of my current series:

Canvas116-4500
   Canvas #116, 36" x 36" acrylic on canvas.

The final steps I took here were to add cerulean blue and viridian green lines to strengthen sections of the painting.  I think the composition is stronger now and provides more interest for the eye to follow.  At the same time, I think it retains its playful quality, which I didn't want to lose.
