8″ x 8″ acrylic painting, unframed
“Abstract Apple a Day”
painted on a cradled birch panel/1″ deep
I thought it would be a fun project to follow my detailed pastel paintings with an abstract acrylic version. I’ve always loved abstract painting. Contrary to some opinions (which we’ve all heard) it’s more difficult than it may seem to create a successful abstract painting. For me it takes much more thought and planning than my realism paintings.
Here’s yesterdays pastel which I referenced.
I left out just enough detail so that it can still be recognized as an apple. What’s really interesting to me is that the further I step back from it, the less it appears abstact.
