Splash Down

Sometimes, I think the most interesting abstract paintings celebrate the inherent properties of a particular color. When I work on that kind of color study abstract, I prefer to use a variety of painting knives to help keep the pigment pure.

This abstract painting is loosely based on an ocean wave front and diving sea birds, but the overall goal was to create a successful color study that explored color blue (and its orange complement) in a balanced, but high energy way.
