Fearless Friday, Red Roses Abstract Acrylic

The painting below,

“Bloom in a Blue Vase”

is one of my favorites

It was painted in an abstract style from a simple jar of flowers

I decided to crop the photo of the blue jar arrangement

and do another painting

in a similar abstract style

I used a black underpainted canvas and began with the background

Soft turquoise and white

I wanted the strokes to be fast, loose, abstract and bold

Loading your brush with a lot of paint for the bloom strokes,

will add interest with dimension and texture

A couple of strokes for the stems and a fallen petal

Touches of blue

Touches of yellow and white and color in the foreground to finish

Some of these colors were applied with a palette knife for texture

This painting was done in less than an hour total

{I did let the background dry before I started on the jar and flowers}

It was super fun not sweating the details

and just fearlessly painting!

Loosen up and Be Fearless!

    I love the texture created by heavy paint on your brush–perfect for this painting.

  5. Ever since I stopped getting your email alerts, I miss so much. Not sure why — it says I am following. I’m not even always seeing them on bloglovin. I’ll try to backtrack to catch up but this is lovely.

  7. Jenna, I somehow missed commenting on your Fearless Friday which I always look forward to reading. Love the abstract!

    Yea, I can comment again!
    I appreciate that you show what you are painting and the steps. It would be impossible to figure out on my own!
    Thanks for sharing at the FWF link party.
    Hugs,
    Rachelle
