The art of abstract art

The art of abstract art is a tricky concept, I think! A few weeks ago a friend came to me asking if I could do some abstract art for her bedroom that she is updating. The first thing I said to her was "I don't do abstract art". Then she showed me a picture of what she wanted and I thought "why not just have a go, I can always tell my friend to keep looking if it doesn't work out."

The above photo is how my first attempt turned out. Nice but a bit boring and could do with some work.

So I had another go.

Better, but I think I still need some practice.

The above paintings were done on watercolour paper and because I wasn't anywhere near happy with how they turned out, I decided to keep playing with them.

That is what happened to both those paintings.  Yep, the art of abstract art still remains tricky. What do you think of how they ended up?

Both of these artworks are now for sale on my Facebook shop here.

P.S I will let you know how that final abstract art for my friend turned out. Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter so you don't miss out on whether it ends up as either a complete cock-up or masterpiece.
