$1.98 PUMPKINS IN FIELD, AUTUMN ABSTRACT by TOM BROWN

CLICK HERE to bid
A strong abstract design is often the best foundation for realistic compositions, and vice versa. The same principles that apply to paintings of recognizable subjects apply equally well to abstract paintings.

As an example of that I thought it would be interesting to show the painting below, which was the basis for this abstract.

In the abstract you can easily see how the main shapes of color and value work together to create an arresting visual. The interaction of orange and green shapes, the lines of movement down the hills, the dark masses of the trees, etc.

All the same things that work well in the pumpkin painting that is shown below also make an effective abstract painting. Thanks for stopping to look, and have a colorful day.
