Acrylic Abstaction

Here's another one of the paintings I finished this week with some details.

I wish I had remembered to take pictures along the way of the individual steps. I will next time! There are about 4 of them. First, put down the texture. Second, dry brush paint on top with a contrasting color. Third, add imperfect circles. Fourth, outline with black/white. I buy the calligraphy acrylic ink for this step. It flows so nicely!

Detail #1

Detail #2

I also like to paint the edges of the canvas so it's ready to hang. No frame necessary.

The beauty of abstract/nonobjective art is that it can hang in any direction!
