New Abstract Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

I began work on a new abstract painting today, continuing with my experimental approach.  First I made broad sweeps with a palette knife using titanium white, parchment, and burnt umber.  Then, while the paint was still wet, I drew lines in white and pthalo blue.

Next, after cleaning my palette knife thoroughly,  I used cadmium orange to make several sweeping marks on top of the paint already there.  This took a bit of delicacy in order not to make total mush.  I did the same with aqua, after again cleaning the knife. 

I drew more lines with the white and blue.  Then I used the edge of my palette knife to scrape off sections of paint, which revealed the colors underneath, blending them as I scraped.  In my last step, I emphasized some of these shapes with white and blue lines.
