Using Abstract Lines
In one of my previous posts I experimented with creating some lighter abstract lines in my painting. It was so much fun, I decided to try it again with a painting of sunflowers.
After tweaking my previous sunflower composition, I did a value sketch that also contained dark lines where I was going to place my frisket to save some abstract lines in the painting.
The very last step of this painting was to tone down the frisket lines with a light wash of watercolor in a few areas.
In the future I may make some of my frisket lines differing widths to add interest. However, I really like this painting as it It makes me happy whenever I look at it. Isn’t that why we paint? In my book, I call that a success!
