“Look to the Hills” Triptych

Three 8 x 8 x 3/4″ Acrylics on Gessobord

I haven’t painted so many triptychs, but I like them a lot so thought I’d give it a try. They can be spaced apart as far as you like. Starting with black acrylic marker, creating lines that flowed from left to right gave me an anchor from which to add color and build the composition. I could have left the lines showing but decided not to as the painting progressed. To watch this painting evolve, click here for the video. I have decided to create one video instead of two, incorporating the teaching as I paint the demo. It’s about an hour long, but you can watch it in segments whenever you have time and need a little escape into color. Sometimes I paint, set to music, and sometimes I add my two cents about the choices I am making or how I am applying the paint. Below you get an idea of how it might look on a wall and below that is a Visual Journey through the painting, close up and personal. All of my videos are free during the months of July, August and September!

I am an Abstract Expressionist acrylic painter. Abstract Expressionism is aimed at subjective emotional expression with a particular emphasis on the creative spontaneous act of painting. I love interpreting music with paint, specifically choral and orchestral music, but I am open to whatever moves me to see color, movement and texture. Beyond Color: Using Paint to Heal, Create & Grow is a painting tutorial series in abstract expressionism aimed specifically at beginners and non-artists who need a creative outlet to give themselves a lift, a way to express whatever they are feeling with color. Beyond Color: Art Blog posts are my brief reflections on the 12 x 12" painting created in each demo, which will also be for sale. To see my latest work, check out my Gallery page. Thanks for visiting Beyond Color!
