I follow ALOT of YouTube channels that cater to my wide variety of interest but for abstract art demonstrations SurajFineArts is by far my favorite. Here’s a painting a did after watching one of his many inspiring videos. I highly recommend following him if your a YouTuber. Here’s a link to the video that inspired this painting I did and I’m also inserting a link to his channel. https://youtu.be/92RPGN-A4o
I used Gelatos and pens by Faber Castell for doing the background and coloring in some of the stencils. I love their products. Liquitex Acrylic paint and mediums, Micron Pens, Prismacolor colored pencils, Gellyroll pens, Faber Castell Gelatos and pens, Windsor &Newton and Jane Davenport Watercolors are must-haves in my art supplies. I also like Jim Holtz and Dylusions products.
This abstract acrylic on canvas was so fun to create. As usual, I used Liquitex Heavy Gel and Heavy Body paints which allowed me to create such thick, heavy texture. I used a variety of different sized brushes and pallet knives to apply the mediums. I painted this in late 2017.
Liquitex is my favorite brand when it comes to acrylic painting. I especially love their heavy body line of paint and their modeling paste and heavy gel. I painted an underlayer of pink and let it dry over night. Then I spread modeling paste across the entire 20 x 20 canvas and “carved” in it using a fork. After it fully dried a couple of days later, then I painted on top of the modeling paste. I had so much fun creating this piece! #painting #liquitex #heavy gloss gel #pallate knives #acrylicpainting #abstracts#abstract art #layers #textureart #canvas #artwork #artdirection#artlovers #fineart I have a few more paintings in process using the same technique.

“Fork It” is an abstract acrylic on 20 x 20 canvas. I used Liquitex paint, heavy gel, and varnish. I had a blast creating this I laid a thick layer of red paint mixed with Liquitex heave gel and used a small kitchen fork to create the “trails” after it dried for a couple days it was ready to add different colors over the red to create contrast and visual complexity. I sold this one for $450 at an art show and still miss it.
