What I learned from painting abstract

Updated: Dec 23, 2019

With the abstracted paintings from last month I had restricted my palette to just black, white and one color. This pushed for a new balance and contrast, other than all the paintings that I had made before.

Below you will see blacks, whites, color gradients and flesh tones. The paintings focus on balance in composition, contrast, and movement.

I love how strong each of the paintings came out and wanted to expand on that while going back to a figurative style.
