Such simple concepts that hadn’t occurred to me before. Really helpful.

Spark

This is a bit of a mess, but it was fun playing and pushing paint around. First time I’ve used board too. Bit of faffing around with gessoing it beforehand.

Krista Harris interview (with Nicholas Wilton)

Thoroughly enjoyed this interview with Krista Harris. I’m slowly starting to understand where abstract artists are coming from. I intend to make an abstract piece soon—maybe even tomorrow.

What makes a good abstract painting?

I’m not sure I’ll head down the track of complete abstraction (at least not for a while yet), but I’m coming to appreciate it more and more, and videos like this really help.

Another abstract painter whose paintings and YouTube videos I really like is David Kessler. Here he is on what (good) abstract painting is. I find him quite entertaining. 🙂
