I ran across this video, and thought it perfect for my blog. One could say it is the beginning in an abstract course. That’s true in a way, but it’s much more than that. I think abstract painting need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Most of us over think, I know that’s my problem.
For me, if you start simple, the painting will take its own turns, and twists that are never expected. That is what Rita Siemienski claims. She lets the painting take the turns it wants, and runs with it. My favorite kind of art!
I think this is a great video because it’s simple, it allows the viewer to slip into their abstract art in a much more relaxed, and stress free way. Again, that’s my kind of art!
A gentle reminder of how easy abstract can be, and how to get out of our own way!
Gentle reminders never hurt, after all isn’t that what we artists do……share energy, ideas, and helpful advise?
