Beginning a New Abstract Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

I often find that after working on a particularly difficult painting, like the one just completed, I want to start something entirely different.  So instead of painting a background in bright reds, oranges, and yellow, I began this new canvas with a background of pale blue-gray.  While the paint was still wet, I drew white lines in free-form shapes across the canvas.

  Canvas #126, 44" x 44" acrylic on canvas.

After the paint dried, I turned the canvas (so that all sides will be covered), drew lines with white and black, and again brushed the whole thing with the blue-gray:

When this background dries, I'll be ready to start the actual painting.
