This is my latest abstract flower, its acrylic with the flower, wall etc made using texture paste. The objects have been gloss varnished and the background matte varnished.

Fantastic work, Toolman! :clap: :clap: :clap: I really like the colours and the composition.


I love using texture paste!  Did you use a stencil to form the shapes?  Is the brickwork also done with texture paste?


No doubt it's even more impressive in real life.  I  know I'd like to reach out and touch it.

Thank you for your comments Lillian, Germa and Maria. The texture paste brickwork is done with a scraper and the flowers with a knife. I have since hung this on a wall and it does look better than my basic photography here. The idea came from abstract work so I thought it was abstract, thanks for the info.
