Is it finished? I'd like to see a couple more layers. Maybe some more shades of the colors you got going + another color? Just my opinion, looks like a good start.

Thanks for the crit. It is finished though. I was running this deal where if people buy me a canvas than ill paint it for free. So this is one of them and I didn't really have time to develop it.

 

Also, when I do paintings of this style I often do the whole thing in one sitting. I could put more layers on it but than the new layers wouldn't blend smoothly into whats already the original layer is already dry. How can I add more layers and make it not seem to separated?

Use the same colors you already used. (Or even better, find some complimentary colors.)

 

Build on top of what you have with new shapes.

 

Definitely looks like it needs more to it in my opinion.

For me, I start with a core shape and just sort of envision an animated sort of imaginary path on the canvas. (Alcohol helps that part along nicely.)

 

I just keep building off of it.

 

Do one set of lines/layers then walk away for awhile or even a day or so and come back and keep building. I used to try and knock it all out in one sitting and I found my work got stale real fast.

 

Do a little, walk away. come back later in a different state of mind and do more.

 

Create some trademark shapes to use in your arsenal.

Definitely good advice from bo, abstracts to me are all about finding what i like as i paint which usually takes some time and multiple layers. Alcohol will loosen you up when making decisions in direction, i like to start out my paintings with some whiskey and maybe finish them with some weed

A few of my paintings will be hanging to the left of it.

 

There's 3 artists total. Each with their own wall. 3 VERY different styles.

 

The paintings are actually hanging up now and I ended up selling one before the place even opened.

Nope. It's permanent. That's just a lil' hole in the wall joint. I'm finishing up something for one of Michael Symon's restaurants right now as well. /highprofilescumbagartist
