Untitled Abstraction#3 is a work I recently completed using the principles of design. The small section shown is near the center of interest of the painting. Principles used include line, shape, value color, movement, size and pattern. I did a randomly generated under painting using mostly red and yellow in acrylic paint. The texture shown comes from covering the painting with plastic wrap, bubble wrap, string, and wax paper. After it dryed for 48 hours I removed the various wraps, string and wax paper and then took a mat 16"x20" and looked for a painting with abstract design as the primary goal. Later I painted over the under painting with acrylic paint to develop a pattern of colors and shapes. Finally, what you see is what you get. Try it, you may like painting using abstract design and principles.
