Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth



This week I had the pleasure of having another talented artist attend my 3 Day Private Abstract Painting Workshop.  I'm always amazed at how each student approaches the difficult task of creating an abstract painting "out of thin air".  Taking a set of colors, a blank canvas and bringing everything to a successful finish is not easy.  But, I love seeing how every student takes those very basic elements and ends up with a successful painting.  I provide the basic instruction on the use of the materials, and with my guidance, they push themselves beyond what they thought they could accomplish.  

If you are at that stage where you need to get out of a painting rut and want to explore new possibilities,  please contact me to schedule a workshop here in my own studio in Inverness, Florida.

This is the painting I did as my demo this week.

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth


Blue Vase
13" x 10"
Acrylic on Yupo
Sold

I recently sold this small acrylic painting on Yupo to a collector in Long Beach, CA.  I mounted and matted it to fit a standard 16"x 20" frame.  I'm so happy that the buyer decided to have it professionally matted and framed.  


What a difference a frame makes!

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth


Ebb Tide
48" x 36" x 1.5"
Acrylic on gallery wrap canvas

This was a fun painting to work on.  Sometimes I struggle bringing a painting to life and other times, everything falls into place without a problem...love when that happens!  It's been a while since I worked on a canvas this large, so I was concerned that I might not be able to finish in one session.  I can rarely get back into the "groove" the following day, so I'm glad that I was able to finish it on the same day.  

Ebb Tide measures 48" x 36".  This  boldly colored, textural, acrylic modern art abstract painting is stretched on 1.5" gallery wrap canvas.    The 1.5" sides are painted in a shimmery gray/black Micaceous Iron Oxide.  Only the finest professional artist materials were used in the creation of this work.    The painting is signed on the side, dated and signed on the back.  It is wired and ready to hang.  A clear acrylic satin varnish has been applied to seal and protect the beauty of this painting.

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

I never know exactly what I will do when I walk into my studio but it's always a fun journey of discovery!  Yesterday I completed a painting that is a bit different from my usual work.  "Study in Gray" is a very subtle composition of various shades of white, gray and black.  I decided to accent it with metallic silver "caligraphic" line work.  I love how the silver gleams off the surface of the canvas.


Study in Gray
30" x 30" x 1.5"
Acrylic on canvas
$1800


Study in Gray measures 30" x 30".  This  textural, acrylic modern art abstract expressionist painting is stretched on 1.5" gallery wrap canvas.  It is accented with metallic silver "calligraphic" line work.  The 1.5" sides are painted in a shimmery gray/black Micaceous Iron Oxide.  Only the finest professional artist materials were used in the creation of this work.    The painting is signed on the side, dated and signed on the back.  It is wired and ready to hang.  A light coat of clear acrylic varnish has been applied to seal and protect the beauty of this painting.

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

The title of this painting, Letting Go, pretty much says it all.  I had started another painting as a demo for my private workshop student.  As I worked, I found that the painting started going in a direction I didn't want it to go.  It was starting to develop into a floral and that's not exactly what I wanted.  I fought it for a bit and even tried to go along with it, but I wasn't happy.  It had become very "tight" and I wanted it to be loose and spontaneous.  My only solution was to grab the gesso, a big brush and set it aside for another day.  

I didn't want my student to think I was a quitter, so I got another prepared canvas and started to paint big, loose strokes.  As I continued to work, the composition evolved as I followed the direction the painting was leading me into.  Sometimes we just need to let go!

Private Abstract Painting Workshop

Today I'm getting ready for my next private workshop student.  We will be spending the next three days together as we explore and discover ways to bring an abstract idea into fruition on the canvas.  Abstracts are not as easy to do as some may think.  A lot of thought goes into bringing an idea together on the canvas.  I love sharing what I've learned in the many years since I started painting professionally.  If you are at the point where you need someone to guide and push you out of an artistic slump, consider registering for a private workshop here in my studio in Inverness, FL.
