How to Create an Abstract Painting for Your Home : Abstract Painting Tips for the Home


DAVID CLEMEN: Hi, I’m David Clemen, on behalf
of Expert Village. And today, we’re going to do an abstract painting. All right, so
this is an abstract painting that I just did. And it turns out it was the New York City
skyline and there’s the Empire State Building. And, you know, it’s kinda like that-you know,
if you’ve ever been in New York, it’s kind of a beautiful chaos. And, you know, we used
the plopping, the painting technique with the squeegee, you know, we just kind of moved
it around and we used different tools to create texture. I got some paint on my face earlier,
in between takes. And so with acrylics, they really don’t take too long to dry. However,
with the build-up of paint you have here in some of these heavy areas, you probably want
to let it dry for a day or two and then, you know, overnight, it’ll–it will dry the shell
of the heavy areas but underneath, it will still be wet for a day or two. It just depends
on if your house is warm or if it’s in the summer or whatever, but, you know, this is
something that you can do on a relatively, you know, short amount of time. And this one’s
a little bit more complex than the one that I showed you before but, you know, like I
said when you start out and you’re not really sure where you’re going, just pick some colors
that you like and keep playing with them, and you too can do an abstract painting.
