Experiments in abstraction

Updated: Feb 28, 2022

Watercolour is a fantastic medium for creating abstract paintings. It really is very exciting to use lots of water and watch the paint do whatever.

However, it’s a good idea to start with some point of reference or you can end up with a mess.

The first of these was based on the patterns in the wells on my pallete but the second had no clear idea of what it was going to be until about half way when I realised I had created a tree. The Tree of Life is a universal symbol but this one appears scorched so it becomes a comment on climate change.
