abstract paintings – no recognisable shapes but lots of that “certain feeling” –
abstract painting with that certain feeling
Abstract paintings are the opposite of realism. In abstract painting shapes and colours are changed, sometimes the shapes are recognisable still but sometimes an artist will deliberately avoid anything that can be recognised - this is called non objective painting. Even the title can be so bland as to give no clue as to what the painting is about. This abstract painting is called Brown and red. It has no shapes you can truly identify. Paintings like this one have to have a feeling within them if they are going to be interesting. It may not be possible to articulate the feeling but we know it is there. That is why I love the phrase "that certain feeling"

is the goal for every painting by Alan Brain. It is made visible through the artist's use of colour (sometimes bold, other times muted but always vibrant); and unusual geometric shapes triggered by realism from the artist's imagination. The emotion in the artwork is there for the viewer to engage with and interpret in their own way. Most of the paintings are in watercolour, some are in acrylic, others use both. The artist will use anything however to create that certain feeling in his artwork.
