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.

Spectrum Surge

Mixed media "Fluid Art" abstract painting

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

Spectrum Surge is the third in this series of fluid art paintings on stretched canvas. For this painting, I wanted to convey the feeling of energy and life. 

The background was painted first in green with brushes using acrylic paints and then I carefully threw paint onto the canvas building areas of colour and linking them together with dribbled lines.


Below are details from the painting.
