The final detailed close-up of the abstract painting, 'Abstraction VIII'
, that was created to test adjacent colours on the colour wheel, and palette knives.
In this painting, the paint was initially laid down, somewhat wet, onto canvas textured paper, with a 2 inch (5cm), firm bristle brush, with the details added via a smaller 1 inch (2.5cm), firm bristle brush and a no. 3 palette knife.
Details of the painting: acrylic on canvas textured paper; 7" x 10" (18cm x 25.5cm).
Because of the differences in monitor colour outputs, I've found that the best results (colour, detail etc.), when looking at traditionally created paintings, are achieved via a higher end monitor, a tablet, or a smartphone.
