We all love Sunflowers, abstract mixed media painting on paper by Sara Sherwood

“We all love Sunflowers”, abstract mixed media painting on paper by Sara Sherwood

How to create an abstract work of art? Just start painting and have fun.

Let go of all expectation of what you are going to create and just start playing with paint or whatever medium you choose. Have lots of paper or canvas and be prepared to experiment, that is how you find your own style. Just do rather than think about doing and with this open approach you can try all sorts of tools, brushes, palette knives, straws, sticks, hands. When you are relaxed and in a playful state positive pure creativity can happen. You may find elements in this playful state that are really beautiful and will try again and again in new colours and on different materials. Painting on board is different to canvas and painting on paper offers an opportunity for different results. I often take paper when I travel and create my smaller works abroad. I am keen on mixed media on oil paper and use pencil, oil paint and gold leaf in many of my small works of art. Just have a go and see what happens…

Fashion photographer Ivan Bellaroba took these photos as part of a photoshoot for an article. He watched me paint and took these as I relaxed and opened up. He has captured a side of me rarely seen. Thank you Ivan “2010 © Ivan Bellaroba”
