Brush and Palette Knife Attempts
One of the interesting things about learning how to paint is that I'm also learning to slow down and enjoy the process.
I actually had no idea how hurried my mind was and it's an amazing feeling to take time and immerse myself in the now!
It's been freeing!
Here are the next three paintings I've done. The first is a Modern Abstract. It is my third painting.
I absolutely loved making this one. Definitely a style I love and I will make more!
The next one is Modern Impressionism. This is my fourth painting.
I'm not sure if I'm overly happy with this one, but I'm just learning.
I also tried a different technique on a 5x7 canvas. I'm not happy with this one, but wanted to try. Technically though, it's my fifth painting.
The hardest part of painting is knowing when you're done. So I played a bit more with the last one. Not sure if it's better, but I prefer it!
While I'm learning, I've copied as my inspiration from:
Painting with Jane, A Walk in the Rain / Osnat, Reflection / Robert Jurisich, layering technique
