Acrylics on 50″ X 60″ Canvas
It took me a month to finally lay paint down on this canvas. I was inspired and had a rough idea of what I wanted to paint. When I looked at the large canvas, I felt a strong feeling that I needed to express. I never understood abstract art until I started splashing paint around. I felt like I had to do it this way. I wanted to feel and to understand.
It took a lot of patience for the first layer of paint to dry. The next day, I peeled out the face that it was supposed to be. After layers and layers of experimentation, I was finally satisfied with the shape and textures I gave it. Acrylics is really a fun medium to play with.
Being an “almost-perfectionist” inside, I needed the subject to be neat and clean, hence, the adding of the black outlines.
And Eve was born, of primary colors, the first adventure, and the beginning of many more. 😀
The only way to know, is to try;
The only way to understand, is to analyze;
The only way to prove, is to show.
Now I can say I tried, I’m starting to understand, and here it is!
