Learn How to Get Started with an Abstract Acrylic Painting

August 30, 2019 1 min read

It can be hard to know where to start when painting abstractly in acrylic. In this clip from her DVD workshop, Acrylic Abstract Painting: The Evolving Image, Virginia Cobb shares a strategy for how to do just that when working with non-objective composition. Virginia textures her entire paper using her fingers, a squeegee, and a brayer. She encourages you to treat this layer as an underpainting and search for shapes in your textures as you refine your design. Learn more about Virginia's video workshop here.
