Floral abstract, "Simpatico" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Simpatico", 8x8, by Carol Nelson
This dreamy abstract turned out looking like flowers. In addition to Golden Fluid Acrylic paints, I also used Marabu Watercolor Art Crayons. They are very creamy and water soluble, so it is easy to get the softly blurred edges - a lot of finger work! I am going to do more experimenting with the Marabu Crayons. They feel like oil pastels, yet they are water soluble. You can move them around with your finger or a brush. Combine two colors together, and you get the color you would expect with paints.

Abstract, Mixed Media Landscape, “Foothills” by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson


"Foothills", 6x24, mixed media by Carol Nelson
detail

There a wonderful moments that happen from time to time in the studio. This painting started with a random application of texture compounds.

Then, with a neutral palette in mind, I poured black, white, and sepia colors and let them wander. Turning the canvas in different directions, I was struck with the landscape image that became this painting.

Mostly, the painting painted itself with a little guidance from me. After I saw the landscape forming, I added some metallic colors of bronze and silver, and a bit of micaceous iron oxide.

Mixed media abstract collage, "Cloud Kiss" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Cloud Kiss", 20x16 inches, by Carol Nelson

I am wondering why this painting received so many "likes" on Facebook. The neutral palette? The various textures? The cruciform design pattern? The juxtaposition of hard and soft edges? The full range of values?

 I knew it was a winner as soon as I finished it. All the commotion on my Facebook page affirms that.

Mixed media collage painting, "Primordial Soup" 070118, © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Primordial Soup", 24x8 inches, by Carol Nelson

This collage continues my current exploration of GREEN. Ranging from green gold to phthalo blue green shade, I'm deep into the cool side of the color wheel. There are a few transparent red oxide passages, but the rest of it celebrates green.

"In the Deep". 12x24 abstract seascape by Carol Nelson
This is what happens when you mix acrylic paints on a wet canvas, spritz with water, and let it flow. Of course, I guided the colors somewhat, but I love the color combinations that seemed to create themselves.

Geometric abstract, "A Scattering of Red" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"A Scattering of Red", 24x24 inches, by Carol Nelson

You would think a geometric abstract would be easy to pull off, but I struggled with this one. Originally, I had some large circular elements in the design.

 After looking at the painting hanging on the wall for a month, I finally decided the circles had to go. That meant a substantial rework of several areas was needed.

 It's just a fact that not all paintings flow off the easel easily. Some require the artist to struggle through several adaptations of her original concept before a satisfactory painting emerges. Often times, just identifying what's not working is the hardest part.

 I consider myself to be an experienced painter, and painting problems STILL happen every once in a while. For more information about this painting, click here to go to my website.
