Approaches to painting abstract and expressionism with acrylics.

Shortly I’ll be in Sweden sharing experiences of my techniques and approaches to painting abstract and expressionism with acrylics.  I haven’t been to Sweden before, so it’s an exciting first trip which I’m really looking forward to seeing how I will be creatively inspired by this journey- and I plan to visit some galleries while I’m there too and fit in some private study time. In this post, I wanted to share some information about these types of courses, because it’s not all about randomly splashing the canvas with paint!  I’ll be also sharing one of my latest paintings which also serve as a class sample.

Day 9 painting journey- it’s back!

Day 9 painting journey- it’s back!  Well it has been a long time since my last post on this painting journey…life gets that way sometimes.  But I was clearly missing something, so I managed to squeeze in some time and put together Day 9′s painting journey.  As I said in Day 8, I wanted to get out of my studio, and I have, so the next few paintings will be of things I find along my walks or on outings which are inspiring to me.  In particular I’m looking at colour, light and interesting textures.

Day 9 painting journey with Ingrid Lee

I was full of energy from painting this etude, that I resumed another canvas painting I’ve been working on, which should be finished shortly.  I feel better when I paint, but the land of administration, business, writing and promotions has taken over my… Continue reading

Day 8, and I’m HAPPY

After yesterday’s painting on Day 7 which left me feeling rather unsuccessful, I was happy of course to be creating, but I didn’t like what I was producing.  BUT it’s Day 8, and I’m HAPPY :)

 

Day 8 Painting journey with Ingrid Lee

 

The flowers were pretty much dead, only a few were still holding any colour, similar Day 6.  The textures and colours which presented themselves today were truly inspiring.  The great thing about the subject matter today, is that the movement has changed- the energy is different too.  The dying flowers and leaves are creating a new world, a new space, and it’s really interesting to capture what I see as new life in this subject matter.

I really enjoyed combining the ink painting first with pen work on top for definition.  While I was painting today, I’d thought over the etudes from the past few days, and… Continue reading

Day 7 painting journey pen and ink

I’m up to Day 7 painting journey pen and ink, and I think the inspiration from Leonardo which I spoke about in Day 2 (see here) has come through.  The heat we are experiencing has dried out my bouquet, and the flowers are more and more shriveled and brown- BUT it’s so interesting and inspiring!

While I was really excited and inspired to start this drawing today, I’m not sure how happy I was during the process of this drawing, which is a brief etude, not a finished art work by any means- there are too many errors, and changes in thinking…not something I would usually share, but it’s an interesting outcome for today.  I haven’t worried about the product of any of the paintings so far, except this one.  And I think it’s going to affect what I paint tomorrow.… Continue reading
