Mix it Monthly - Abstract and Paint Party Friday

Hi, have been enjoying a rest, well sort of, apart from Spring Cleaning and there was a lot of Spring to Clean......

Mix it Monthly are asking for Abstract Paintings using the colours - Deep Yellow, Orange, Deep Blue, Sky Blue and Light Turquoise. Not really sure about the term Abstract Art so looked it up and it says

'Art that does not attempt to represent external, recognizable reality but seeks its effect using shapes, forms, colours and textures'




Painted in Acrylics (on Canvas Sheet), its my interpretation of a piece by the wonderful abstract artist Osnat Tzadok 

The second piece for Mix it Monthly using the same colours is just something from my head.




Painted in Acrylics (on Paper) and watercolour pencils

Have enjoyed taking part in this March Challenge and again it has stretched me out of my comfort zone.
Am also off to Paint Party Friday another art challenge which keeps me on my toes..........lol

Wishing you a great weekend, take care of yourselves, hugs Annette xx

PS:  wow have just received this from Zoe Sanderson a beautiful piece of mail art and the wonderful Somerset Studio magazine, have never seen a magazine like it, truly wonderful with loads of inspiration. Thank you so much Zoe. xxxx

Two incredible pieces you bring to the show on Mix It Monthly Annette! The first one really take my breath by its vibrancy and the emotion it brings along and the second on is so interesting by the fadeness of the face near to those cool shapes... (if that make sense?!) Wonderful you are again on the boat this month ♥ Conny

Great artwork here. I love the abstracted dancing lady, and the serious lady is so unusual, I don't think I've ever seen a face painted quite like this.

Nicole Beadwright Campanella said...

Hi Netty thanks for the good wishes for my mom. Now this art is amazing. I am pulled to the fist one. All the bold colors that come together beautifully.
Ohhh I forgot you live across the sea. I could think of why you didn't know Sommerset magazine. There is a host of them. I am published in the Jewelry mag. Yes the magazines are impressive.

Gorgeous singing colours, and I love the design of both pieces. The second on particularly is so different and original, ans also does work as anabstract because it raises so many questions. Lovely work.
