abstract paintings in watercolour with texture – Flow
contemporary abstract paintings with texture
Texture in a painting can be very pleasing, it gives the sense of closeness and creates a tactile response. All ranges of textures are possible from rough to smooth and a painting benefits from variety. Applying texture in watercolour requires some practice but all ranges are possible; a texturing agent can be used too of course. This painting called Flow is inspired by the power of water over rocks. The muted colours are intended to enhance the feeling of power, bold bright colours would have been too entertaining.
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.
