Going Abstract - How to Create Abstract Art What is Abstract Art? Abstract art is a bit like music. Just as a tune is an arrangement of sounds in time, with no meaning (not trying to 'sound like' water or birds or anything else) so an abstract composition is an arrangement of shapes and colors in space (in the case of painting, on a flat plane). Just as there are rules governing musical composition (scales, keys, principles of harmony) which can be followed or broken to a greater or lesser degree, so there are rules of composition in painting, which you can follow or break depending on what effect you want to achieve. What does abstract art mean? Where do I start with Abstract Art? Spend some time exploring the principles of composition.

Limit your palette. Use chance to help create a composition.

Letting a painting evolve as you work is very free and lets you be spontaneous, but also leaves you open to the possibility that the painting won't go anywhere and you'll end up with a mess. Ultimately the degree to which you plan out a painting depends on your personality, some people find it essential and others a hindrance. But regardless of how detailed you like to plan (or not), there are several decisions that have to be made before you to start to paint. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. If you are using oils, acrylics, or gouache, will you be using a ground and what color should it be? 6.
