Thinking...
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art

I paint because I enjoy it. I paint the human figure because I think it's the most interestingly complex form on earth and someday I hope to get it right. I paint skies and abstracts because I love to play with colors and there's a freedom to knowing I can't get it wrong. And I paint trees because they offer the best of both worlds.

I paint because I enjoy it. I'm not trying to make a big important statement. I don't think my art will change the world. I just want to make something aesthetically pleasing, something fun to look at.

I paint because I enjoy it. I sell my paintings because sometimes I think they're worth it, and because don't we all want to make money doing something we enjoy?
Just curious, for those who paint abstracts, what kind of search keywords do you use? How do you describe your work?
I'm pretty terrible at it. I feel like the point of art is to be looked at so any attempt to describe it comes off as either cheesey or pretentious. Still, those pesky search engines make it a necessary evil, so I guess it's something I need to get better at.

Thank You very much again. Traditionally the knife has been used to obtain impasto, so irregular level of volume on the canvas. I use acrylic paint, so it is really important to work fast, even on thick layers of paint. If you prefer your surface do be flat, you might try to mix your color with acrylic gels, lighter ones,not the heavy gels that are more adapted to build the structure. Also, there are some other types of products like acrylic extenders, may help, as well to smooth the surface, as they delay the drying process. Personally I don't use any mediums, most of times. The size of the tool is important, as well. I have some extra large knifes (liquitex free style series), also, some construction tools (that can be bought in DIY shops). The larger is the tool, the easier to obtain the smooth surface, when you wish that the knife strokes aren't visible. If you have other questions - I would be happy to answer. All the best ! Aleksandra
