Beginning New Abstract Expressionist Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

When I paint in a loose, free style, I think of it as "abstract expressionist" painting, though of course that term is broad and originally used to refer to a particular group of NY painters from the 1940s and 1950s. While other movements such as pop art followed soon after, abstract expressionism has never gone away.  Young artists today are still drawn to it.

To begin the background on this painting, I used parchment, black, turquoise, cobalt blue, and magenta, blending the paint in a loose manner.  It's a first step for me in having something to paint against besides the blank canvas.
