Going for gold, Going abstract

This one I thought I would post for Laura at create art every day, it is actually one of my base layers on canvas, ready for an oil painting, I have five others, all very different, in style and colour. My daughter came down and loved it, I then realised that I had infact engaged in the act of abstract work, it was an amazing moment while in the zone, choosing the colours, kinda deciding where paint should go, but really letting it do its thing. I enjoyed creating all six backgrounds, each one made me think differently, I just hope that when I paint over them , I can do them justice. I don’t know what they will be yet, I thought it best to decide once dry, I am sure the feeling will come to me. I am not a great planner, more of what takes me at that moment.

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.

    Oh! At this point it kind of looks like old tattered fabric hanging over a boarded up window. This should be interesting!

  4. I agree with Dawn. I can see the snow outside the window. I like this the way it is. I’d like to see the other “backgrounds” you painted.

  5. Rebecca! Oh I love it! I’m so sorry, I’m still out sick and haven’t been blogging barely at all or I’d have seen this sooner. Yay for abstracts, you’re a natural, girl! Not that I’m shocking anyone with that statement. Wow. I love the texture in this! This is all oils? Man I really love it, I would almost be afraid to mess it up. The thing I really have trouble with in my abstract stuff is a focal point. I just go where the feelings take me and try not to think, try to stay out of the way of the flow of the paint. And that’s the only thing I feel might need playing up a bit in this? I could be totally off base, what do I know, really but yes! I’m so glad you are dipping your toe in the abstract pool! Have you watched Debora Stewart on Artist Network yet? I know you had wanted to at one point. Loving this, I hope we see more abstracts! So glad you had fun just letting one color call out to another. Awesome!

  6. It is a window scene, I can totally see the window. Through gauzy curtains and I see the snow. This rocks!
