Abstract Floral Painting
Megan Mayer 2/24/2016
With a few colors of acrylic paint, an artist shows through a demo how to make a unique picture. Her canvas is so large it takes up most of the floor of the room she is in. Her interesting style of painting requires it to be laid flat so she can walk across it.
She begins by pouring paint, almost looking like she's tossing it around haphazardly. The flowing shapes she makes are quite graceful-looking, but then she completely changes the look. With a large brush that looks like an adapted broom, she moves the paint around to form new shapes. The spatters are now forming into something more flower-like.
Stepping carefully, she adds to her painting some stems. More details are added as she goes on, almost doing a sort of dance around the wet paint on the canvas-covered ground. The flowers slowly begin to look almost like poppies. She then reveals that the smaller canvas she was working on off to the side has turned into a lovely dancer. Her skills almost make this look easy, but her precision creates an elegant work of art.
