Combing Elements to create a Painting through color and composition.
This Monday Lesson is about combing more elements. using color to create movement on the surface of this small canvas, I have no intent of what will be painted here. I literally am basing the color application on good composition and movement along with balance.
This is a small 9 x 12 inch board canvas and I am working the undercoating with acrylics.
After the surface is dry, I began to use my finger in more wet acrylic paint and began to push around the surface trying to mold in my mind what I wanted to form on the composition. As you know I paint a lot of horses so of course that is what came to mind. See if you can line these up to note where I saw the movement to create this piece. If I looked long enough, I might have flipped the painting and created a floral piece.
After securing a horse in mind I use more finger painting to form things up and then it was the palette knife I reached for. The layers of color came together with thick swipes of paint.
