Painting Styles

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

      I do enjoy painting in different styles, usually starting off with taking a formal style, like “abstract expressionism” and I change it to “abstract expressionism through nature”.  The reason for this is, with the same styles, I try to recreate new views of abstract expressionism through nature or physical objects, such as still-life.

Some of my Impressionism work begun improvisionally without any subject in mind; after putting down many composition of the colors and balancing them on the board, I refer briefly to my sketch book or memory to create nature through abstract.

     In abstract impressionism style sometimes colored tissue and colored papers were the principal material in paintings; that they overlapped each other in surface to created a different layers, various shapes and line where they form and some sort of design.

    without using any kind of brush, paint was poured on masonite and then blotted with tissue paper and sprayed with water to create a different effect. From memory, pictures or images you can create a beautiful painting, and at the end with brushstrokes you can reach your goal.

     Studio sketches and study of sea spray in nature, creates an imaginary beauty on my canvas; it exaggerates the scene of nature while in the mean time shows the glory of color and imagination.

Impressionism - Title: Memories of Summer

In abstract impressionism style, while painting I am not thinking about any specific idea or subject; the way ideas come to me is simply putting down different layers of paint by glazing them to distinguish different subject.

This blog will try to explain how my ideas, as well as ideas from past artists, have come to mind and how these ideas have become works of art for viewers worldwide.  As Picasso says about art, 5%  is idea and technique, while the remaining 95%, is practicing.  I will be discussing these ideas for the following artists; from Pablo Picasso, Paul Cezanne, Juan Gris, George Braque, Jackson Pollack, Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gogan and Mark Rothko.
