DIY Red Abstract Painting

Posted by DecoArt on Mar 3rd 2017

A palette knife and a large brush are great ways to make your own simple, abstract painting.


    • flat brush
    • canvas
    • palette knife


    1. Starting in the bottom right corner, add red, magenta, and black with a palette knife.
    2. As you work your way up, add no black and just red and magenta.
    3. For the top third of the canvas corner, add almost no red and magenta and mostly white. The pink in the top right corner should mostly come from what is left on the palette knife.
    4. If you would like smoother transitions of colors, use a large flat brush to go in and smooth out some areas.
