CALIFORNIA CENTRAL COAST ABSTRACT PAINTINGS

Front and Side

Painting Color and Shape Relationships

In these series of paintings, there is a depiction of two people, front and side. The people are really just the shapes and the colors. So, it’s an interaction of two people as shapes and colors.

 

 

Each painting is very different in the series. It is the combination of colors that make each one unique and different from the other one. The shape of the profile view is always on the right side and the front view is always on the left side.

 

 

That is the composition I am using in this whole series. With these front and side series of paintings, I am playing with variations on that until I get what I want to happen color-wise. This is also part of the process in terms of the relationship between the right side and the left side.

These paintings are all mixed media.  They measure 4″ x 8″.
