Im a fairly new artist and still exploring styles and techniques hoping that I will find mine in the process. One thing I have always struggled with is abstract art. For the longest time I didnt understand its appeal, but I’ve learned that it’s because it goes against my style and methods.
I naturally gravitate towards realism and impressionism and found DMP and Marks methodology. Since I dont use geneva paints yet, my open time for mixed paint is pretty small, Id say 24-48 hours.
Since I dont like wasting paint, ive been using the extra paint ive mixed to explore new styles and texchniques such as abstract. Lemme tell ya, I have a new found appreciation for abstract artist because I found it extremely difficult to free myself from the constraints and make an abstract poece of work!
