I finished up this second mixed media contemporary abstract this morning. My current inspiration comes from tide pools and sea glass.
These are artworks on paper using various materials, including acrylics, crayons and pencil. Each piece features colors of the sea and unique, linear abstract drawn motifs.
Living in Florida provides ocean inspiration and an appreciation for seaside hues.
Abstract Seaside Treasures
Happy New Year everyone!
I am really excited about 2018, because I’m focusing on creating larger, contemporary works in addition to the mini paintings and smaller works that I have been doing for several years now.
This is one of the new mixed media contemporary abstracts created with acrylics, crayons, and pencil on heavy paper (14 x 11 inches) using bold colors and floating, linear imagery. It is the first painting in my Tide Pool and Sea Glass theme this quarter. The loose, layered style is one of my favorite methods of developing a painting. Each layer works together to give the viewer both color and linear movement experiences.
