I’m dreaming of a pop-inspired, abstract and funky-fun Christmas with neon highlights, apparently.
You know what I love most about abstract art? Nothing really matters except for achieving some sort of balance with an appealing color palette. I listen to music and let my brush go. It’s cheap and effective therapy (you cannot go wrong), and if you avoid a paint-blending mishap (like accidentally combining lime green and pink that warrants a mucky shade of chartreuse), you can impress your friends.
I really am in a Christmas mood, though I’m not quite ready to listen to the music. So, Kungs’ “More Mess,” which is rather summery-sounding, inspired this piece. I listened to it at least 20 times in a row while working, seriously.
Materials: palette paper, acrylic paper, acrylic paints by Artists Loft, and two jars of water (one for washing brushes, one for rinsing, always).
