Although I took the whole week off from work, I never seemed to make it into the studio. Today, I decided to paint with the group at the arts center. One of the group gave a discussion on how he goes about creating an abstract painting from a still life. We all gave it a shot.
My first painting kept going towards realism. It's a cute little painting, but it sure isn't abstract.
Abstract 1 - 6 x 6 - Gouache on Crescent Board
My second painting went abstract and I kept it pretty much hard edged.
