Hey friends, remember when I told you I’d write more about the abstract art I had in my fall tour? (click HERE if you missed the tour). I actually made a little movie about how to make your own. Lets say I tried to make a movie, haha.
I layered the artwork behind the brass pot I found at Goodwill and for now I like it like that but am not sure if it will stay right there.

In 2014 I wrote a tutorial about how to make the below turquoise art (click HERE to see the post) and people just seam to love that tutorial but I still get questions about it which is the reason I wanted to make a little movie to show you what I do.
Easy Abstract Art for Beginners
Here is what you’ll need:
• a canvas
• gold leaf and sealer(usually gets sold together)
• artist spatula(my secret weapon)
• acrylic artist paint of your choice (brand doesn’t really matter)
• different sized brushes
I wanted to show you that I paint over several days and let the layers dry to get a nice texture which is what I love in a painting.
I hope the movie loads fine for you.
And here is a photo of the painting I have in our living room:
Like I mentioned, for me it’s all about layering to get texture. Starting with the first layer of white and then with the other layers whether you do several colors or only black and white.
Here is a close-up of some of the texture:
Again you can also check out the other tutorial with the photos by clicking HERE but that process was not done over several days.
I don’t know if you guys are video people or you’d rather have photo tutorials. I have to be honest, I’m a photo tutorial kinda gal but I know there are a lot of folks out there who like to watch the process. Please do tell what you prefer.
Below you can find some of my other artwork tutorials and ideas.
That’s it for today und Tschüß
