The Daily Abstract

Daily abstract paintings posted throughout 2022

About The Daily Abstract

The Daily Abstract began on the 1st January 2022. The little paintings that I posted daily to this blog, during 2022, were mostly mixed media with a few digital paintings towards the end of the year. They gave me the opportunity to play with different techniques, styles, materials and colours.

Sometimes I created the paintings to test a specific composition for a much larger piece of work that I was planning. Others were pure experimentation, or a reaction to a place I had been, something I had seen or experienced, perhaps a mood I wanted to convey, or were simply fun to paint.

By the 31st December 2022, I had posted 365 abstracts, one a day for a year.

I hope you enjoy looking through the paintings on The Daily Abstract. Please use the archive links below to look at each month’s paintings or the search bar.

Future abstract paintings will be posted on my Journal.

Inspiration:

This painting reminds me of when I was very young, knee-high to a grasshopper, and loved to crawl through narrow tunnels in the undergrowth that bordered the fields and woodlands where I grew up (Worcester, UK) Not sure if the tunnels were made by wild animals or other small children, but my friends and I loved them. 

Check back tomorrow for another painting:
