I thought I'd try my hand at a little abstract painting. I know that abstract painting doesn't appeal to many people usually because it doesn't "look" like anything recognizable. There's not much to the technique except to add color to the canvas or paper at random until it "feels" done. Even though I didn't intend for these paintings to mean anything, when they were finished I saw things in them anyway. A study in black and red, aka Black Lightening A study in black and blue, aka Blue Marble A study in violet, yellow, and green aka Spring A study in blue and green aka BlueGreen One of the reasons why I like watercolor so much is it's so random; it can and often does end up looking like something totally unexpected.
