If you've read my intro to abstract art, then you'll know that the formal (visual) elements of abstract art can include any one or more of the following: line, color, form, shape, pattern or texture.
In these abstract watercolor painting instructions, we'll focus mainly on color and shape, with a little bit of pattern thrown in towards the end of the watercolor painting lesson.
In addition to demonstrating how to use these formal elements to create abstract art, these abstract watercolor painting instructions will also show you how to mix watercolors to create analogous colors. Cool, huh?!
Since these abstract watercolor painting instructions show you the basic steps to creating your own abstract watercolor paintings, you can adapt these instructions in a number of ways, lifting your wings to create abstract watercolor paintings in any variety of colors, using any number of shapes in all types of sizes. Use these abstract watercolor paintings as a starting point for freeing your creativity - as a springboard for getting you to think and learn about how to make your own abstract art.
On your watercolor paper, use your pencil to draw a few simple shapes all over your paper. You can see what I've drawn below. I chose to draw things like circles, triangles, trapezoids, rectangles, tear drops and squigglies.
You don't have to draw the same shapes - you can use your imagination and draw whatever shapes you want!
Now that you've drawn some simple basic shapes and then added some more basic shapes, it's time to get out the watercolors!
