"Instinct"...Modern Floral Abstract Painting by Elizabeth Chapman



Instinct
Mixed Media on 5" x 7" paper


SOLD

To purchase contact: Elizabeth

This painting began as a realistic floral watercolor painting. (my realistic florals can be seen by clicking here)
After having already previously painted a realistic, I became a bit bored and wandered off into the abstract realm.  Later, I came back in with a more gesturally feel to the realistic image of the floral photo I was working with. All this happened without my giving it much thought, just following my instincts.  Mixed media materials include watercolor, gouache and acrylic paint.  A fun piece!!
