Is Large Abstract Paintings easy to learn?
First of all: Extra Large Abstract Painting is the most basic and fundamental need of artistic skills, that is, sketch and color, which is also the basis of all kinds of Black and White Abstract Canvas Art, oil painting is on this basis plus oil painting techniques and completed. So the most important thing to do well in oil painting is to improve the ability of sketch and color.
Self-study is a difficult thing, especially for self-study art, because art is more subtle, need to gradually improve awareness and skills, if no one leads, it is easy to take a detour. So I think it’s better to find a good teacher to guide you in.
It’s better to start with basic sketch and colorology, because it’s orthodox western painting, so it’s better to learn sketch and color systematically.
If conditions permit, I suggest that we use our spare time to find a nearby studio, because there are more professional teachers, there are enough model resources, and some students can come with you. You’d better finish the basic sketch and color training here, have a basic understanding of the art rules and have a certain aesthetic, and then self-study and improve, that is, an introductory learning. Of course, there are many roads, but I think it’s a better one.
Secondly, we should look at some famous painters’albums or the actual big pictures of the original Black and White Abstract Painting, and see more of these works, from the overall composition to the details to be carefully savored. It will be very helpful. These pictures can be found on some foreign art works websites or art painting galleries.
Third, here are some personal experiences and advice:
Art seems to be a more perceptual thing. In fact, the foundation of supporting it is rational and scientific understanding. We should think more about rational analysis of problems and not get caught up in feelings. That is to say, from perceptual knowledge to rational knowledge.
Think more and ask more questions. When you have the opportunity, ask the higher education and read more good books.
Drawing more, practicing more and sketching more is actually the most important thing. Without the accumulation of quantity, there is no qualitative leap at all. For improving painting skills, copying works is a shortcut, of course, a high standard of copying.
It’s better to wait until you have a certain foundation before painting. You can start practicing with more water powder and watercolor, because oil painting materials are more expensive.
Last but not least, the road to learning art is bumpy, and beginners need to refuel.
