Process of Painting Abstracts by Paul Ygartua

“Creating abstracts is an unique experience encompassing many years of experimenting with other styles, so as to develop a free expression with a confident spontaneous hand.

Creating a balanced effect where colours are used in the right proportion to create the harmony which eventually makes the composition flow.  The texture is created like most of the painting with spatulas of different sizes.

It is always more of an organic look, real texture, you can see it and feel it, this prolongs the visual response and the visual pleasure. I love the sculptured look and always looking at experimenting with  more methods on building texture giving the third dimension.”

Abstracts are a culmination of other styles, a learning process of development, culminating a lucidity and confidence to produce a successful abstract one must be slight of hand, most abstracts are produced fast and spontaneously.

It is a personal freedom of expression bringing together everything you have learned over the years through spontaneous strokes applied with palette or brush, without organizing ahead of time. With feeling and passionate emotion allowing your hand to move faster than your mind–keeping a lucidity, a free flow that is essential for any large abstract with impact.

It is the thrill of executing an abstract in a short time and achieving your goal.
