Abstract Painting Tips

Abstract Paintings are those paintings, which do not represent figures in their natural form. It's a non-representational or subjective way of painting. It is supposed to be a spontaneous expression of ones personality. They are a study on brushstrokes and colors rather than object and theme. The strokes and choice of colors are supposed to give us insight into the artist's minds and help us get a drift of his/her experiences.

All these factors make it quite a formidable art form to handle.

Our easy-to-follow follow Abstract Painting Tips will help you approach the complex art of Abstract Painting with more confidence.

  • Think of a way to approach a subject-will you employ the cubism style or the pseudorealistic style? Its important to zero in on a specific style.

  • If you have decided to dabble with different styles and mix your mediums then make sure that they are compatible-oils don't mix well with watercolors.
