Forcing Abstraction

Before I had my class paint from upside down images last week, 
I did this "practice" demo in my studio 

I purposefully chose a busy photo. 

Painting upside down certainly forces you to think more abstractly 
and some very interesting things can happen. 
My friend Lisa Daria Kennedy does it all the time.
That's how she gets those wonderful loose expressive paintings!

  1. Aw, Nancy, thanks! I think the abstract chickens look great and I like the color choices you made too.
