Paint Abstract Florals using Four Colors.
Welcome back to another BobBlast!
This BobBlast catches me during a workshop for the Arizona Watercolor Association. On this day, we focused on specific color combinations from
my Goof-Proof Color Wheel - and as a part of my "4 Cs for Beginning a Painting."
In this BobBlast I show how I goof around with the 4 colors first. I heard that "under every good painting is a good abstract painting" - so, not being a big fan of the color green, I chose green as my DOMINANT color. In the video I use an abstract floral series to show how I start to paint very abstractly, then pull it all together thru color selection and negative shape painting.
Color Steps, using my Color Wheel are easy to see from beginning to end:
Step One - Dominant color is Green
Step Two - Focal Point color is Magenta
Step Three - Two Spice Colors are Marigold and Ultramarine Blue
I begin by painting very abstractly - and finally with opaque colors, paint over the parts that are not needed. If it's not part of the picture, it's out of there... uh, painted over...
Start Abstract First!
