Thanks everybody. Never mind the painting, I can hardly figure what to do for an original composition.  I have no reference photos for this attempt.

Oh, I'm still reading about abstract paintings. My first attempt is almost finished but I thought it isn't abstract enough but I read 'abstract' is a very abstract word.  :crazy2:

Nice painting Peggy!

Personally I wouldn't refer to any of these paintings as 'abstracted', but that is probably my fault by posting my previous painting in the subject post.   :oops: :knuppel2:   I'll go beat myself later  :whistle:    :heeha:     :jk:    ;D

So far the imagination part is coming through!  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:

To me semi-abstract art is recognizable but includes a combination of unrealistic color mix and overly accentuated or proportioned elements. Abstract on the other-hand seems to me to be more of an interpretative  blending of elements, shapes, colors and textures.

Usually, semi-abstract in art occurs when the subject remains recognizable, but the forms are highly stylized. It can also be representational--the painting represents a concept, but doesn't depict an actual scene. Sharon/Sacgal's "Blue Trees" painting in the w/c encourager section of PB is a perfect example of semi-abstract art. The paintings of Wassily Kandinsky are abstract.
