Daily Abstract Painting, "Abstractions of the Mind" 20x16", Oil

Abstract painting is not the norm for me, therefore, it is usually not relaxing either.  For some unknown reason, this one was the exception.

Planning probably made the difference.  I have a DVD of an abstract artist who advocates just slapping on color and letting it go where it will.  It works well for him.  For me, not so much.

So I found an old canvas, one I had started a painting and never finished.  I sketched in the basics of my composition and then reviewed some of my images and decided what colors I wanted to use.

Some areas show  pieces of the original painting peaking through.

It was a nice change of pace from my usual painting techniques.
