Tips for Combining Realism With Abstraction

I’m excited to announce that I currently have an article in the October issue of Watercolor Artist magazine, on newstands now. In the article I share tips and ideas for making figure paintings more personal and creative by combining realism with abstraction. Below is an excerpt from the article. There is also a step-by-step painting demo of one of my paintings not included in the article available for download on the magazine’s website. You can find a link for the download and purchase the magazine by scrolling down the page here.
