Underpainting with alizarin orange & black

Underpainting with alizarin orange & black

I finally caught doing a painting in action, now’s a good time to get a peak of the painting process I’m involved in here.  I’m taking an abstraction class and this was one of my projects in the making.  Since I went to Capitan last week, I missed my class so I painted this yesterday before attending my class.  The goal is to paint shapes and enjoy the process.

Time to add a few colors, I'm drawn to oranges and greens

Stage 2, adding some colors like orange, green and purple.  Somehow, I’m drawn to these colors and its retro feel.  I just started noticing that it’s looking like some kind of house or building.  

Abstract #3

Final painting; abstract, colorful and interesting

As I’m painting, I’m adding more colors to the palette like bright red and yellow and white.  White is now being added on towards the end.  I was very dependent on it before, so it’s a nice change of pace to save it for the end.  I keep asking myself, “Can I use it now?”…ok, now!  So there it is, a unique painting from the heart and soul.
