Commissioned Abstract Painting by Miabo Enyadike

What is Abstract Painting:

Abstract painting is a form of art that focuses on the use of color, shape, texture, and form to create a visual representation of emotion or mood. Here is a basic recipe for creating an abstract painting:


  • Canvas or paper
  • Paint (acrylic or oil)
  • Brushes or palette knives
  • Water
  • Palette or mixing surface


  1. Choose your colors: Decide on a color scheme that you want to work with. You can choose warm colors like red, orange, and yellow, or cool colors like blue, green, and purple. You can also choose complementary colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel.

  2. Prepare your canvas: Choose a canvas or paper that you want to work on. You can prime your canvas with gesso to create a smooth surface for your paint. You can also create texture on your canvas by using a palette knife or other tool to apply paint in a thick layer.

  3. Start painting: Begin applying paint to your canvas. You can use a brush, palette knife, or your fingers to apply the paint. You can start with broad strokes or small marks, depending on your style. Experiment with layering colors and blending them together.

  4. Build layers: As you work on your painting, continue to add layers of paint to create depth and complexity. You can use different techniques to create texture, such as scraping, dripping, or splattering the paint.

  5. Step back and evaluate: Take breaks and step back from your painting to evaluate your progress. This will help you see the painting from a new perspective and make decisions about what to add or remove.

  6. Finishing touches: Once you are satisfied with your painting, you can add finishing touches like highlights or shadows. You can also add details like lines or shapes to create a sense of movement or depth.

7.Let it dry: Allow your painting to dry completely before framing or displaying it. This can take several hours or even days, depending on the thickness of your paint and the humidity of your environment.
