We had an exciting painting session last night at The Studio making HUGE Abstract art! It was so much fun….and we can’t wait to do it again. Beautiful work everyone!!!
Abstract painting is a matter of taste. Some people love it….others not so much. Sometimes you need a really large painting to fill a space you have or to bring color to an area and a good way to do that is with a large abstract. And while many people think that anyone can slap some paint around and have an abstract painting to have a successful painting it takes a little more than that. On Friday, January 27th at 5:30 pm, you can try your hand at creating a large work of art while learning the principles to develop a beautiful painting. Click here to register.
Ellsworth Kelly’s, born on this day in 1923, emphasized pure form and color as he developed his abstract art. He was a major influence on Pop Art, Minimalism, hard-edge and color field painting, Ellsworth Kelly’s best-known works are distinguished by sharp shapes flatly painted in vivid color, such as Colors for a Large Wall (1951). His abstract paintings are inspired by the light, space, and color in the architecture around him.
He died on December 27, 2015 at the age of 92 in New York. Read more about Ellsworth Kelly here.
Palette knife painting produces beautifully textured works of art. You can work in a totally abstract way as well as produce recognizable subjects. Plus it can be lots of fun. You can do it. Why not give it a try.
These are examples of some of the work you can do. Join us at the Paint Party in May to learn this technique. Information on the Paint Party and registration here.
Last Wednesday the kids tried their hand at palette knife painting. It was fun and they all did a great job. It’s exciting to experiment with something new and different. I decided to complete the demo painting I did with the kids so that we can offer an adult version of the palette knife class. A paint party coming soon….
