Paint Abstract
You will need:
  • Brushes
  • Large White Paper
  • Black Tempera Paint
  • Premixed Tempera Paints
1. Using just black, paint various shapes. For example: First paint several triangles different sizes, then some circles, squiggly lines, etc. The paper should be covered with black lines with adequate white space around each symbol and line.
2. Premix a pallette of colors that may be different, maybe even monochromatic.
3. Paint around the black symbols and lines. Be very thoughtful in what color is next to another color and think of the paint as creating more shapes and symbols but this time in color. Overpainting colors is also possible.
4. After the painting is dry, paint white highlights in dots and lines of paint in specificly selected areas. Be careful not to overdo the white paint highlights.
