Abstract Watercolor Painting

By Mary Ann Boysen

In abstract watercolor painting, artistic content depends on color and design rather than pictorial representation. It should depict an emotion or stir up an emotion within the viewer. There are some beautiful works out there, but when I have done abstract painting, the customer wants one to match his couch. UGH! That is really a test!

It is difficult because it takes away the freedom of the artist to produce something that sets a fire in his soul. But, I have done a few. I never know if they would pass muster with my contemporaries that paint in this style.

That said, there are many beautiful abstract works that have made history, and have adorned public places as well as beautiful homes. I am leaving this page for my “abstract” friends, or anyone who would like to upload your images and your feelings about the work.
Go for it!

Just follow the instructions below and you can share your abstract thoughts and works. While you cannot include HTML (i.e., hyperlinks, etc), if you include a reference I will make sure the link to your site, or email address, is contained in your submission.
