Experimental Art

"Sun Spot" is a watercolor 8" x 8" monotype that demonstrates line and rhythm.
"Untitled #1" will eventually have a title but for now it was an exercise in spontaneous lines that created shapes to paint.

"Line Abstract" was an exercise to emphasize line and composition. First I developed a composition, then painted the shapes and then outlined the shapes. It is done in acrylic.
These paintings are examples of work that I am doing following the guidance of Rolina van Vliet. Her instructional books teach concepts followed by directives to make a painting based on the concept. I have her two books: Painting Abstracts and The Art of Abstract Painting.
