Abstract card

CareyAbstract2011

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
Other:  stencils, sequin waste, bottle caps, daubers

  1. This looks fabulous Jackie, the colour layering looks fabulous and some of the elements really seem to “float” – love it!
