The Process Of Making Art
What is Abstract Art?
Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use visual language of shape, form, colour and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.
Abstract art has been around since the 19th century, some might even assert that abstraction started with the cave paintings thousands of years ago. Some of the artists we know today who have had a large impact on how abstract painting has progressed are:
* Wassily Kandinsky - Cossacks, 1910
* Piet Mondrian - Composition with Yellow, Blue an Red, 1937
* Jackson pollack - Blue Poles 1952
* Gerhard Richter - Abstract Painting 599, 1986
Drip & Pour Techniques
Acrylic paint pouring is a fluid painting technique used to create art, by pouring acrylic paint onto a canvas. Acrylic Pouring can seem like a deceptively simple painting technique, but it can be a tricky thing to master! After all, pouring can be done in all sorts of ways, and the results can be dramatically different each time. The two most simple techniques are the traditional pour and the dirty pour. Using additives like silicone also adds another layer of unpredictability to your painting process.
