Abstract Floral Painting Process

I thought you might like to see the painting process of my latest abstract floral painting “Colour Me Happy”.

Here you can see I began with black and white with a touch of blue. Lots or random mark making with both paint and pencils. And of course paint drips.

Now I have begun to add some reds and whites to create different tints. More drips too.

Beginning to add some orange and quinacridone gold.

Throughout the process so far I am continually scraping through the colours with a wooden skewer or old plastic credit card (favourite tools).

Next is the introduction of lemons and greens.

At this point I came to a crossroads and couldn’t decide which way I wanted to proceed.
So, I took a photo and uploaded it to my iPad where i worked on it with my Apple Pencil.
It’s a great way to experiment with ideas.

Then once I was inspired to continue, I proceeded with an added confidence in the direction I wanted to go with this one.

And here is the final result.

Here you can also see it in a room setting, where I can visualise it in its final resting place.
Your home maybe? You will find it to my Online Shop.
It will eventually arrive varnished and ready to hang in the home of whichever collector has the yearning to own this piece of art.

“Colour Me Happy” and I have enjoyed our time together and I hope you have enjoyed viewing our creative journey.
