The last time Carey was up for a visit with the family we got talking about abstract painting and although I have never painted an abstract painting before it struck me that the backgrounds I do for some of my art journals are just that. So I did this painting for Carey’s card using the same methods I would for a background but with really bright blocks of colour and almost filling the page. I am quite pleased with the results but it is hard to know when to stop adding bits.
Inks/paint: blue, yellow, red, black and white acrylic paint, coloured pens
Card: water colour card and a large aperture card
