spring vibrant artwork

Step 1
Determine your color palette, either following the information provided, or venturing into a different color scheme. In abstract painting, create interest through the use of color and or shapes by using repetition.
 
TIP: When using acrylic paint, there is freedom to correct a mistake or change the canvas by letting paint dry and covering it with gesso.  
Step 2
Prepare your work space by covering the area you will be painting on, filling jars with water, and selecting the paint and paintbrushes.  
Step 3
Paint the entire canvas with Cloud acrylic paint and let dry. 
 
TIP: Use a hair dryer to speed up dry time and continue layering the strokes of color in the circle. 
Step 4
Create circles of different sizes across the canvas using white gesso. 
Step 5
Paint in the areas outside of the circles with white gesso. Let dry.  
Step 6
Add strokes or lines of color to your circles for added interest and balance.  
Step 7
When complete, have your piece custom framed at a Michael's store.
