100 Abstracts

8Its a new year and time for a new project.  I really enjoy the numerous 365 day projects is see people doing. But they appear to take a lot of time, effort and dedication. To find something new every day to photograph seems like an almost impossible task to me.  maybe one day :)

I had an idea while looking through my old paintings, one thing i’ve never really tried is to do abstracts.  i have the odd one i have created but i have a lot more attempts at still life than abstract.  So what better time to start.

The idea of this project is to create 100 abstracts within a year – that is i have to complete 1 painting every 3 to 4 days. With school holidays, other work (that will hopefully get) and general life it seems like its going to be fairly hard to do.

The reasons i want to do this are…

  • Painting practice
  • Learn new techniques
  • Paint without having to have a subject
  • Maybe make something someone will like enough to pay me for it

The Rules…

  • Must be painted
  • Minimum size is 6″ x 4″
  • Each painting will be posted on this blog
  • 100 paintings must be completed in 365 days (15th January 2015)
