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.

Here is the second little painting on the theme of woodlands.

It is so easy to overlook the beauty of the natural world with much of our time often spent working and playing indoors with our tech. So I got outdoors and collected leaves and I wanted this painting to capture the atmosphere of being in that wonderful space.

I guess this painting is more semi-abstract as it's very obvious where I'm pulling my inspiration from. But there is still abstraction, room for your interpretation; are you looking up through the undergrowth towards a misty sunrise? Or looking down on a watery reflection?

Check back tomorrow for another painting:
