Well I never!

I rarely paint abstracts, mainly because I never know where to start, and then what do I do next?  On the occasions I've tried, I have rushed, not considering my next move, and ended up with a big mess.  This time, I went slowly, planning each brush stroke..... amazingly, I really like the result!


Abstract - Watercolour, 14" x 11"

Hi Diana, I used a wax candle to draw lines before I started painting, it worked well I think! Thank you, I enjoyed this so I will probably do more.

Thanks Cathy!

Candle wax....that's a new one! did you leave it on or do you iron it off when your finished?
The colors and composition are very exciting!

The result is awesome, so difficult to make beautiful abstracts, but this one is a real success!

Your painting is really beautiful Ruth. I love your choice of color and the way you incorporated them together to create a great abstract.
