" It is not at all significant whether an artist uses a real or an abstract form." Wassily Kandinsky

Autumn  an original watercolor abstraction by Nita Leland

Autumn by Nita Leland

I started this watercolor using a twig, a stone and a leaf as my subject for an abstract design. It was interesting developing patterns and rhythms in the washes. Working with "spontaneous beginnings" to develop a strong composition is challenging and takes thought and careful development to bring to a successful conclusion. I see mysterious shapes throughout the picture everytime I look at it.

For a better understanding of abstraction read chapters four and five in The Creative Artist.
