How to Paint an Abstract Fast and Easy
Have you ever wanted a simple, quick way to come up with abstract painting ideas? I have just the thing for you.
Allowing yourself…or forcing yourself…to paint quickly can get your creative juices flowing and let your painting ideas come without letting your conscious thoughts get in the way.
Sometimes you'll come out of the exercise with a work you want to show. But even if you don't, you'll get ideas for your next paintings.
And working quickly with batches of small paintings — I do six in this video — maximizes your chances of coming up with things you like.
In this video, I'm going to show you how to do this quickly and easily…and with fun! And I’ll show you some techniques to get special effects, such as using deli paper to “stamp” colors.
One important key to this fast painting exercise: Don’t expect to like all the pieces you do. It’s quick and easy painting to give you ideas that you may want to explore.
