ORIGINAL ABSTRACT FIGURATIVE PAINTING BY COLLEEN SANCHEZ

AIR

This small painting, AIR, was done with a very limited palette mixture in one session. The challenge to create movement by starting at the focal point and working your way around and back to the focal point was suggested by one of the instructors where I attended a summer class last year. It may seem simple to do, but it is not. Once you make your first brush stroke, each following one must be well thought out and then executed before your paint starts to dry. I'll be posting some other small figurative paintings over the next couple weeks. Thanks so much for checking in!

  2. I actually love Abstract Painting expressionism, too, and that is definitely NOT easy, not something that’s readily accessible.
