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.

Chromatic Collision

Mixed media "Fluid Art" abstract painting

  • Acrylic paints
  • Enamel paints
  • Stretched canvas 30 x 25 cm

Chromatic collision is another painting on stretched canvas, kind of following yesterday's theme of creating a spacy, galaxy look using fluid art techniques. I love the spirals of paint, where two or more different coloured paints have wrapped themselves around each other while flying through the air, as I 'threw' them onto the canvas.

To achieve those spirals I lay paint along the length of a pallet knife then added another colour on top - sometimes piling 3 or 4 colours on top of each other, before flicking or throwing the paint onto the canvas. The different coloured paints twisted like child's candy, before hitting the canvas and I really love this stripy effect. Look for the stripes to see what I mean.

Check back tomorrow for another painting:
