An emotion in art can be created by reminding us of somewhere or someone and representational art does that all the time.
To create an emotion, a feeling, in abstract art depends on such things as colour, shapes, and ... a powerful element - symbols.
These three abstract paintings use a symbolic bird to create an emotion. Each one has a title and that can key in the reaction, but it may be the wrong title for you. I respect that and never fail to be amazed and intrigued by how we all can react so differently.
Here come the "birds" ...

Creating "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.
