Steps To Making An Abstract Watercolor Painting

By Serena Price

When creating an abstract watercolor painting, the artist has to follow a certain process wherein he will be brainstorming, conceptualizing, and then painting. There is a misconception in most people that abstract artists would just randomly paint using random colors and random strokes. Of course the truth is that artists in this field are actually painting an object in their own perspective.

Now the very first thing to do would be to get some equipment for the artwork. Of course one will be needing to get an assortment of colors of paint and put them on small palette before he would start working on his piece. After that, get a paintbrush, a small cup of water, and of course get a canvas to draw on.

The very first step in this process would be to look for an object that will be the object of the artwork. Of course one may choose what he would want as an object for the artwork as long as it does not move at all. When choosing the object, one has to make sure that he has a certain connection to that object so that he can actually paint it.

Now the very first step to the process would be to actually draw a light sketch of the object on the canvas so one would have a reference. This technique is done by a lot of beginner artists so that they will be able to have a guideline on how he is going to paint. Of course the veteran painters do not need to do this anymore because they know how to directly paint on the canvas.

Upon drawing the object, one may now conceptualize how he will be able to paint that object. An abstract artist thinks differently as compared to regular people which means that he views that object differently as compared to others as well. So basically, he just has to conceptualize how he will put his perception of the object on paper.

From there, he can start with mixing the water and the paints. After doing this, he may start with any color that he would want as the portrayal of his painting will actually depend on his own creativity. So based on his small drawing, he will create an abstract portrayal of that object that he drew.

The last step here is to edit the artwork a little bit by adding a bit more layers to add some color and strokes. Now editing the artwork is very important because it will either make or break it. So one has to just continue putting some more strokes and colors that are nice so the finished outcome is beautiful.

So basically, those are some of the steps that one may take if one is a beginner in abstract watercolor painting. Do take note that creating an artwork is a process and will not have any substance if the creativity process is not followed. Artists do not just paint anyhow as this means that they did not put any thought into their work.
