Hello! My name is Savago Lome. I'm an artist here in South Florida. Today, I'm going to show you how to paint abstract. I choose a theme, the beach theme and when I think about the beach I think about three colors, it's sand color, an ocean color and it's light green color and the blue sky color. So, I make abstract painting using these three colors. Now, let's begin. I can use, I'll show you how to mix the color on a canvass. So, just add it with white color and the blue color and just mix it like this. I use wide one-inch brush and make sure when we talk about the abstract painting it's all about the shapes and colors, and you might not be able to say what it is but it can make some association in a while with some object like I said, the beach for me is three colors and three lines. It's a blue line of the sky so just keep painting. So, now this is another line. So what I mean about the beach and abstract, it's all about your imagination and you can put on the board like this and for somebody it will be like something else, not the beach. So, I'm now going to sand and starting upside down so to do the sand. So, now I turn it and just stroke the sand with a white and ochre. Maybe you want to see these colors 'till it's three lines goes together. You think about something else like flag of the country or just the colors. So, this is how to paint the abstract. This is Savago Lome. Thank you for watching.
