Another Experiment in Abstract Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

I've been in an experimental mood lately, wanting to try different techniques in my abstract painting.  This time I drew lines in pthalo blue across the whole canvas in rambling scribbles.  Then while the blue was still wet,  I used a palette knife to cover over the lines in titanium white and parchment so that they blended together. 

I used a bit of cadmium yellow light as well, blending that into the other colors.  Then I put a big glob of pyrole orange on my knife and made a large curving mark along the top left of the canvas.  I did the same  for a smaller curve on the right. 

Next, I got the urge to add yellow lines, mostly in the center section, to accentuate the yellow and provide texture.  After that, I took the pthalo blue and drew sketchy lines to outline and define the composition.

Tomorrow I'll take another look at this and see what I think of it.
