When set side by side, the sweeping brush strokes seem to begin in the lower right hand corner and fly out to the left. The dripping violet that emerges from the conical horizon in “Terror Beach” creates… Read more Companion Dark and Light Blue Acrylic Abstract Art on Canvas →

(Notice that the top right corner is irregular, and creates an inclined shape.) I still try to focus on effective colour composition- as this is the reason why I started… Read more Abstract Art- Archipelago →
