I really enjoy abstract paintings. My instagram feed is filled with the abstract paintings of artists I admire (that and bird photographs, of course). I sometimes try abstracts myself and for whatever reason, they just don’t seem to come out the way I plan. It isn’t until I add a little bird that the background really starts to take shape.
It’s alright I suppose, but when I put in that egret, I was able to rework the entire painting such that (I think/hope) were the egret to disappear, it would be an infinitely better abstract than the original version.
I have a similar painting that needs reworking. It’s abstract mostly, but it does indeed have a bird in it. I’m thinking tomorrow’s challenge will be to turn that one into a true abstract, the reverse of today’s agenda. Get rid of the bird instead of adding one and see what happens.
