Each chapter focuses on a Study or a Step By Step Demo
There is something intensely personal about abstract art that is not as apparent in other artistic movements. Through abstraction, the artist is forced to draw out the essentials in an image
leading to a resonant individual expression. This essential form often gets lost in the details of an objective image. Personally, I find a deeper connection to abstract with my history of image-making and a clearer understanding of what is required to create something of beauty.
Elements of Art
Abstract Still Life
This project has two parts. For the first part we’ll use our still life reference as a starting point and stay relatively close to it, meaning when we are finished, a viewer will know that we painted a colorful still life of flowers with a quality of light and form. For the second part of the lesson we’ll crop in on a section of this piece and create a second variation that may or may not be even more abstracted. Less about flowers and more about color, shape and the abstract patterns these create.
Crows are wonderful birds to draw and paint with their interesting silhouette and powerful character. Capturing their attitude, movements and form makes these pieces full of potential. Bringing in lots of media and tools will add to the delight of doing these three versions!
