A Splash of Imagination

A Splash of Imagination
Photo Description:
I gave myself the challenge of doing my first abstract painting in one night. My painting is composed of mainly vibrant colors of pink, blue and black, I intentionally utilized the different shades of these colors forming a range of slightly opaque to very solid color schemes to achieve the variety of motion in my painting. By intuition, I knew that the blending of different shades of the same colors would give me the picture I imagined in my mind. I also added splashes of subtle orange and white to create the punch of attraction I wanted. The abstract image I initially imagined was the scenery of a boat travelling down a long river with mountains growing on both sides. However, I received many different interpretations from my own and that became my idea for describing my abstract painting. I would say my painting consists of multiple images within one united image where different viewers would have their very own unique focus point, where they could interpret meaning into.
