Just recently I started to do abstract paintings and find it challenging? How does one paint an abstract? 1. Pick the colors I like to use for the painting. 2. Determine a design, Bridge, Four Corners, Hidden landscape, Lines Horizontal or Vertical, Curves, etc. 3. Pour the paint and spread it around. 4. Add texture with forks, patterns, webs, wires, string, whatever comes to mind. 5. Then the hard part, did the design and colors work. 6. If not, then what must be done to make the design become a “WOW!”
