... exploring in my creativity further in 2017

Paint Party Friday - Week 36 - An experiment - unsure if successful though

I've been working away at a fun little sketch/painting for Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday * and didn't get much painting done this week. But I still wanted to come to the party and have been wanting to try painting abstracts and also to try using a limited pallette.

Well.... not so sure I was successful but here it is! Not quite the abstract look I was going for but it might be an abstract landscape....


It's only on a heavy paper so instead of trying to fix it, I think I will move on to another experiment. (My  paper is too big for my scanner - I think I need a bigger scan-bed!)

Hope you have a great time at the Paint Party Friday and have a great week with some experimentation in it!

* Come back Tuesday to see my fun and silly little piece!

  1. I think you abstract is looking good. I see a lot of texture there and do like the background. Love the bright oranges as well. Happy PPF, have a great weekend.

    I love that you worked with a limited palette and were still able to come up with something this clever - perfect trees for Fall!

  4. It is looking good! But if you are not feeling it (and I do know the feeling!( use it for a start, and layer on it. It has great colors!

    Interesting effect. To me it is sunrise over the forest in winter with the mist lingering.

  16. It looks like one of those bright red mornings where the sun is burning through a heavy fog.
    Makes me want to be watching the sun come up at a cabin, drinking a big steaming mug of coffee.

  19. great lesson and example of " less is more" that is a great color..I like it very much and it makes me think of time I spent on Lake Superior in the upper Peninsula of Michigan. Now if I can just remember to do less and come up with more , once in awhile.. need to un-clutter my art and let it be what it is.

  27. I love it! Will be interesting to see if you come back to it later with a different perspective and paint away!

  28. Eva, I love this one, especially the sun or moon there!

  29. Great idea in limiting your palette I always do that when I need a bit of a creative tune up... and I love working on paper because then when things don't work I can tear them up and use them in other pieces xx

  32. I like it and can see that if you wanted to, you could use it going forward and add more. I love the soft oranges.

  33. I really like the composition, very balanced by the shapes. I love the colors, too, calming, although in the warm family.

  34. Hi Eva I really love this piece! I struggle with muted tones and abstract so I really appreciate this! I think it's great and i love the tones you chose! Great work :0)

  35. Eva it will just come to you when it is ready...abstract what is it all about, what is the meaning of it? If it means something to you it will come. Lol in the meantime just enjoy the process. Thanks for helping me out when my link broke twice. You are a star! I hope I have done it right this time!!!!

  43. I Love how simple and clean this is- I agree that it brings to mind a sunrise in a misty forest- so lovely and peaceful.
    I also agree that it can be hard to work with a palette of neutrals- anything outside of your regular comfort zone will feel "off" at first.....
