Color attracts attention and many times the intensity of color in an abstract painting just can’t be found in other home decor items. A bright modern abstract can accentuate a room like nothing else can, and that splash of color from your modern wall art is a focal point when paired with otherwise less than inspiring neutral colors.
In my studio I have trays and trays of mixed paint. I love all color combinations and use tone on tone, light with dark, or contrasting colors in my painted canvases. The layering of colors also creates interesting textured effects. All the choices inspire me to make my contemporary abstracts more vibrant, interesting and even bolder.
Is color your mood enhancer too?
The abstract painting Circus shown above is a textured acrylic with red, blue, orange, green, purple and yellow in a crazy blend of color. The vibrant colored costumes and sets at the circus add to the exhilarating feeling as amazing feats are performed above your head. This original wall hanging measures 18" x 24".
