Abstract Paintings

I felt the need to have a change of pace in the studio, I think I was getting a bit stale from painting all those landscapes, clouds and city lights. I just needed to paint something entirely different. I’ve dabbled a bit with abstracts in the past but now seemed like a good time to step it up a bit and work on some small oil studies. If these went ok then I would think about doing a series of larger paintings later in the year. I wanted to remove myself from my usual approach and palette, so I went for some pastel shades and a style that would challenge my thinking. Here’s how they turned out…

The results are pretty good I think, I’m happy for the most part with the tones and values. It marks an interesting new chapter in my art career and should help me become a better painter in the long run. Time will tell!
