    Anatomy Of A Painting

    This photo I took is the subject... it's not the cliffs that drew me but the abstractions created by the water as it glides back to the sea like a seal on its stomach. This is a beach on the southern ocean near warrnambool in Australia - great waves from the antarctic that...

    My second ever painting.

    It kept ruining itself as it dried so i had to keep reapplying to the flowers. I think it turned out okay though.. Its very tiny! Like the width of an iPhone 5

    Painting is really relaxing to me.

    I don't think and I don't like sense anything when I do it. Its as if i let my subconcious guide me in making something beautiful. I really should do it more often!

    Painting Is My Form of expression

    I just love the feel of sitting down at my easel and painting whether it is my usual abstract or just blending colors on my canvas. It is definitely a way for me to express how I am feeling or to get out some pent up feelings or just to have fun. I am not an artist by no means...

    Painting Heals

    I Get Lost In The Moment.

    I love to paint so much. When I'm painting, I really get lost in the moment. I find the inspiration and I start sketching slowly, then I start painting little by little. I forget everything. I'm not aware of time anymore.

    I've been wanting to post this

    for a while. This is something I made when I was little. I believe I was around 8, 9, or 10 years old. I created this heart piece using just paint stamps that were round and in the shapes of circles.

    Painting allows me to escape my brain

    but at the same time explore parts of it I didn't even know existed. I paint with some of my favorite music blasting and it is so therapeutic. I get carried away with the colors and the motion of what I am creating as well as the sounds that I am surrounded by. I often forget I...

    I started painting last year to relieve stress.

    Now I'm absolutely addicted. I've somehow gotten into space scenes, which are wonderfully abstract in every way, and managed to cover a whole wall in my room with them. It's like my own personal masterpiece.

    but now I barely have time. I love painting abstract paintings I have imagined in my mind. The more color the better!! I have my absolute favorite displayed on my bedroom wall right now. I really wish I had more time to paint more often.:(

    Limited Palette - Letting Two Colours Speak.

    colours to form landscapes or anything you want? Water colour is my favourite. Inking is cool too.

    A Glimpse Into My Abstract Mind

    When I paint I go somewhere else. This place is a place of balance, an escape from chaos. In many of my paintings there are things that symbolize a balance of elements or sometimes there are things that symbolize grounding, because these are the things that I am seeking when I...
