Abstract or Figurative Style Art
One thing I have noticed about being an artist is you have to prove you can
“draw” before anyone takes you seriously. Even if the style is abstract expressionism, many art buyers want to know that the artist has skills, and that she could paint realistically if the mood caught her.
I consider Autumn Swamp, my original painting featured above to be figurative. It represents forms that are recognizably derived from life, stimulates a mood in the beholder, but is not photo-realistic. This painting below, entitled Autumn Calling, is inspired by the same scene in my creative psyche. Of course, some folks may completely reject the figuratism and say it’s completely abstract expression.
I’d love to know what your thoughts and preferences are. Please leave a comment or share this post.
