    I would like to play. I really like abstracts - they look so different from my usual, don't they? I wanted to achieve more vivid colors, so I used acrylics. For the most part they were painted using a palate knife. But I put some conditions on myself:
    1) I wanted to use up my old acrylics
    2) I wanted to use a composition in one of the twelve design formats suggested by Bob Burridge (see the Bob Burridge thread to learn more about him)
    3) I wanted to use Bob Burridge's method of using his color wheel, which is a little different than the typical R/B/Y primaries and G/P/O secondaries (again, see the Bob Burridge thread)

    Attachment 208467 Abstract 1 (cruciform composition; dominant: red, focal: blue-green, spice: yellow and purple)

    Attachment 208468 Abstract 2 (overlapping frames composition; dominant: green, focal: purple-red, spice: didn't use)

    Attachment 208469 Abstract 3 (golden section composition; dominant: green-yellow, focal: purple, spice: red and blue)

    Attachment 208470 Abstract 4 (constellation composition; didn't follow color wheel)

    I should have asked if these would qualify for the swap before I signed up! Maybe they are Partial Abstract? Semi-Abstract? These are "Fish" and "Iris"

    Great cards, CiCi! Id consider them abstract Just like lots of Picassos work - you can see what its meant to be without being them realistic.

    Well done, You! Sounds like you had fun.

    In my post #23 I mentioned Bob Burridge and his color wheel. His weekly “Bob Blast” for this week is a nice summary about using color. If you are hesitant to jump into abstract painting, I suggest watching this week’s presentation for approaching color. It will help you get started and using his formula almost guarantees a successful painting.
