Love it or loathe it, painting in an abstract way was tried by the majority of those members who met last Wednesday evening.
Some painted simple abstractions, whilst others embraced their inner-abstract soul that was waiting to escape. Well done everyone!
Here we see members working on their abstract painting using a variety of sources…their own imagination, photos, greetings cards and still-life objects. The last 3 photos show paintings worked on by members painting their own projects.
To help inspire us, Patrick brought in three pictures he had previously created, which show abstract shapes based on real places and buildings. The fourth photo below shows a painting bought locally by Eric S, showing pleasing shapes and colours of an abstract painting.
Patrick began this picture at our summer venue of Chalk Church and has now completed it. Don’t the vibrant, warm colours remind you of a hot summer’s afternoon?
