This is such a great site! I've learned about ten things already and I only joined five minutes ago! I hope you will all have a look at my work and tell me what you think! Looking forward to getting to know some of you better!

Welcome again.(did so on the post about inspiration).

For the abstract side you can take what I mentioned there and then slowly start abstracting each of the scene components in different stages - changing the colors and shapes as you go along.

I did an example of this technique some time back. I will look for what I did and post it later for you to see what I mean by this process.

Hi Kelley. Would you mind being our very able translator? The only languages I can read is English, Afrikaans, German, Hebrew and a bit of Zulu. Muchos gracios  ;)

I assume Ana is able to read English. I would like to personally welcome Ana to the forum.

Hi Charlie...welcome.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Hola.... bienvenida. Sí tenemos un montón de diversión aquí pero también aprender mucho unos de otros. Dennis y Nolan son maestros maravillosos. ¿Hablar o escribir a inglés a todos? No se preocupe, tenemos formas de comunicar si no. Disfrutar y bienvenida

Google seemed to do the trick. Some words were probably arranged different, but it did well enough to be understood.   O0
