Now, lets get back to the point. Any artwork requires 3 basic things in appropriate proportions and these are; color, texture and composition.

Color

Most often the biggest disaster beginners make is to use too many colors as they start. Don’t do this ever. Go humble. Because you might not handle it properly.  Just remember, to begin with, you want a simple abstract art, and for that use less colors and see how successful your painting will come out to be.

Texture

As the name suggests, texture means how much of the paint you actually apply on your surface. Is it thick or thin? For getting a thinner texture you need to paint in washes that will bring out a flat effect. Always be consistent in your painting. Do not make one part thick while the rest thin and vice versa.

Composition

This simply means the position of the objects you paint. Their size and shape. And yes, their relativity to each other. Does this fit with that and so on.

Now that you are ready to craft your own artwork, ask yourself, do you like a thick texture or do you prefer fine washes of texture?

Although there are many ways to create innovative abstract art paintings, we will discuss only one of it here.

  • Your next step would be to use a ruler and pencil to separate different parts of the painting you wish to create.
