The idea for this painting came to me the other night and I knew exactly how to paint it from start to finish, of course I knew how to paint it intuitively, that is! Here are my other two Moonlight paintings: Moonlight Abstract #1 and Moonlight Abstract #2 and Falls
I originally envisioned my being able to “twirl” my board and do some crazy paint flinging but I had to improvise and tilt my board to make it go like wild. I added water here and there to get the paint to move and I used my sprayer to make some texture. I re-emphasized the red dots and dashes for a little boost.
My husband wondered if that area to the left with the curved band needs something. I told him that it gives a resting area for the eye but the more I look at it, I wonder if it could use a thin dark blue band. What do you all think?
technique: saturated wet on wet, Daniel Smith colors used: Quin. Red, Hansa Yellow Md, Ultramarine Blue, Indanthrone Blue, Indigo and Moonglow.
I love the softness to this one and yet it needs some “zing” and at the same time, I love it the way it is. I might let this sit for a spell and maybe I’ll add more to it or call it finished.
