Design Strategies For Abstract Paintings

October 6, 2015


I have another large abstract painting commission. In preparation for this I did three sample paintings to help the client decide what would work in the space. The client requested cool bright colors for this painting. The first sample was loosely inspired by several photos taken from the space shuttle.


The second sample was based on a painting I did from life of a Pink Peony.



The third was inspired by some of my sketches of seaweed and other items from the beach.  


After some discussion the client and I decided on the Space Dragon design. The concept spoke to the client. She thought the design was unique and her child is currently enamored by dragons. The dark purple background might be too dark for the room. The paintings color scheme might be adjusted to resemble the peony sample.
