Working to Make A Realistic Picture More Abstract. By Samuel Durkin

I’m a painter that makes abstract realist canvas paintings, the purpose of this style is to maintain real fundamentals and a recognizable image, while giving the piece abstract elements.

If you’re looking to make a realistic piece extra abstract, there’s a variety of techniques of accomplishing this.

Hawk Painting. Interference- Samuel Durkin

Look for angular things in the initial image, discover the qualities of tone, form and colour and then see what minimal angular things you may create with them.

Breaking up an image with several expressive strokes, dangerous and riotous disorder is a really thrilling method in making a realistic artwork additionally abstract. The important thing here is to not be afraid, and make the artwork compelling and daring.

Cockeral Abstract. Colour abstraction- Samuel Durkin

Heighten hues
Instead of sticking to realistic hues you can move them to fundamental colours or totally different colours. Tones needn’t be light and dark, but as a substitute you can use colour to provide the impression of various tones. combining primary colours together makes them darker. Once you overlook realistic colour, you may make use of these as an easy method to have a strong abstract atmosphere.

As ever initially stare at the source material. Spot what may be removed and not lose the form. Employ orderly lines and enlarge them beyond the confines of your objects. Colours need to be keep to the minimum, and ensure that shapes are bold and firm.

Texture and Interference.
Divide the image with pattern, be daring and cut at the image with brush strokes or a palette knife. Attempt to keep the intrusion reliably throughout the image in order that it isn’t concentrated in a single region.

Lastly, just play.
You could unite a few or most of the ideas, and while you work you will devise some ideas on the way to rework a picture whilst keeping some of the realism. Employ these thoughts as just a starting point and observe just how much more ingenious you’ll be able to become with practice.
