Problem Solving in Abstract Painting

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

Like any intuitive art form, abstract painting requires all of our abilities: technical, creative, and analytic.  Sometimes a painting seems to "create itself" without effort, but most often the painting process requires a mix of intuitive action and analytic problem-solving.  

I've been working on a canvas based on an idea I had, but the execution didn't satisfy me.  I needed to find something else for this painting, something bold that would enhance the image, not destroy it.  Here's the beginning of my solution:

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

Next, I will finish filling in the new shapes I drew in varying shades of green.
