Abstract Painting for Seniors and Beginners
Abstract painting is…abstract. The term itself is difficult to define. In the world of art, abstract represents a sort of departure from reality. It uses shapes and forms, colors, and textures, to present something that is unrecognizable and strays away from visual reality. In other words, it’s a bunch of paint thrown together on a canvas that is subject to viewer interpretation. Some in the art world point to impressionism, post-impressionism and cubism, as the forerunners to much of the abstract paintings that we see today.
