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.

Mixed media "Fluid Art" abstract painting

  • Acrylic paints
  • Matt house paint
  • Washing up liquid
  • Stretched canvas 30 x 25 cm

I love this bold strange turkey-like strutting creature with delicate lacy feathers. 

Like yesterday's painting, this one began with a covering of diluted white matt house mixed with a little washing-up liquid. Next, I dribbled a large S shape in electric plum and bronze with a little added black, then combed the paint with my wide-toothed comb. By gently blowing on the painting I was able to move the paint and create those lovely lacy areas, where the fluid acrylics were being affected by the washing-up liquid that I had mixed in with the paints. I then created rich almost glowing pools of red and purple, by dropping undiluted paint from a spoon. I used a cocktail stick to draw outlines and details within the painting.  

 

Here are some details from the painting:
