Video: How to make a red, black and yellow painting

In this video“Learn how to make an abstract painting #2“, I share how to make a triptych-style abstract painting.

Table presentation

I love working on triptychs, I find it’s a format and configuration that suits me.

My working method is to produce a single visual spread over the three canvases making up the triptych.

Steps for creating the painting

Creating the central shape

I arrange the frames side by side and start by spaltering a central black shape.

Red to accompany the black shape

As is often the case, I love pairing red with black – it’s a very effective combo.

From the outside in

Not a very conventional technique, but as you know, I experiment and work the way I want.

So here I’ve decided to color in yellow from the outside in. To do this, I dilute with water at different rates depending on the desired result.

The interior

Next, I decided to paint the inside of the picture in a blander color so as to gradually create a gradient with the yellow.

After further work on the central shape of the painting, I accentuate the transitions and refine my gradient.

Reveal the colors!

In this last part, I rework certain areas of the painting with yellow and other colors to reveal the first layer of paint.

What do you think?
