To create an piece of original abstract art, you must develop a strong imagination and good sense of creativity. Original abstract art skill include the ability to mix different colors, shapes, and textures together and create a complete art piece that represents something in particular. When putting down paint for this form of art, a lot of skilled artists begin in different ways which depends upon what they might be feeling and how their imaginations flow. One simple way to begin is to think of an object that you wish to paint. Now take that same object and abstract it.

Imagine in your minds eye that the object is a blur and paint these shapes and colors. Add different shapes and colors to the painting to make it more abstract. Another tool to assist you is music. This helps many artists begin their artwork.

The rhythm of which the music is played usually influences how fast or slow an artist paints in a session. Music also influences the actual painting. If for example, the music is loud and fast, the painting can be bright and loud. When the music is of a slower type, the painting might come out dull and somber.

Three would be what you would like to paint on. Anything from basic paper to primed paper, or even a canvas. Since you are a beginner, and painting on a canvas could be a bit expensive, I would start by painting on paper. There are many different types of paper depending on which medium you choose to paint with. OK now start your original abstract painting. abstract expressionism is a very popular type of abstract art. Painting with no plan at all. Painting by the seat of your pants if you will.
