Beginning an Abstract Acrylic Painting on Stretched Canvas

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

I've been working in small sizes on panels and odd sizes ("tall" paintings) on canvas, but now I'm back to painting on a large stretched canvas (44" x 44").  Typically I begin an abstract painting with some sort of background to work off and then continue in an intuitive expressionist manner.

This time I began with a plan in mind--an idea of what I wanted to do with this painting.  It was going to take several layers, and this first one is a background starting on the bottom with a medium cadmium red and working my way up through oranges, yellows, and parchment to white at the top.

  Canvas #125, 44" x 44" acrylic on canvas.

Come back tomorrow to see what I do next.
