Abstract Art Tutorial

Posted in Decor Files by Miss Circumstance on January 9, 2012

One of the blogs I read, Oh Happy Day!, talked through how to do an abstract art painting. One of the things she said was how easy she always thought it looked (Guilty. Remember, I am riddled with the I-can-make-that disease), and thought she could just slap some paint on a canvas, but upon closer inspection realized the ones she liked were many layers of color and texture. She does some great explaining on things like “toning the canvas” (what the what?? Didn’t even know what that was), and patience (doh. I guess I’ll have to get some of that), and blocking out colors (thought that was basketball but I have been enlightened).
