Left over paint….. Abstract creation

Despirate to keep my new palette clean, I embarked on using up the remaining paint, ocre, orange, sepia, burnt sienna. For a change I gave abstract a try ( best stay safe with a hare)

this is fun!

I enjoyed so much, I prepared to dirty my palette with some new colours, and got into the abstract thing, a little different to my usual style, as I slapped the paint on with large brush strokes quickly, and well soaked! Blues and greens this time.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

  2. Thank you, I really enjoyed painting this way…..the blue worked out better, I did need to add to the brown one after it had dried, as it was just too flat, I did make it better than it was, but I guess this style, of lots of paint and fast will mean you win some and loose some? I think the beauty of it is allowing the paint to do its own thing, and hope it turns out good……I am just the tool of transfer, palette to paper, lol
