The following video demonstration will teach you how to create your very own abstract painting easily from scratch. The entire painting is completed in one sitting in about 30 minutes. It’s a wet on wet painting meaning wet paint is applied on top of wet paint. This will allow the colors to mix and interact with one another on the canvas to produce the desired effect. The Artist is using acrylic paint as his medium.
The Artist begins by taking some white paint and adding water. He mixes quite a bit of this white as it will form the base of his painting. He then pours it directly on the canvas and spreads it around fairly evenly. By the way, you can use any color you want as your base coat. It does not have to be white. It all depends on the look you are after. White is just this Artists personal choice for this particular painting.
