Next Session with New Abstract Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

After using up a lot of almost-empty jars of paint to begin this new abstract painting, the canvas looked very drab to me with its dull grays and magenta.  I began this painting session by drawing frenetic lines in white and black to add some energy. With a palette knife, I flattened some of the black lines to spread out the color.

Next, I chose two green mixtures--a light emerald and a darker green.  With a brush, I loosely added the greens in mostly vertical swaths across the canvas.  Then I painted a pale apricot in the same manner, very loosely. Finally, I drew more black lines, outlining some of the small sections of color. 

This painting looks more active and vibrant to me now, but it's not ready for my signature.

  Canvas #155, 40" x 30" acrylic on canvas.
