This is my photograph of an icy puddle which may work as an abstract reference.
Last Friday was our last day of painting warm and cool winter landscapes and here are this week's versions. It will be quite a relief (I think) to start thinking about abstract work which we will start in two weeks' time. The first couple of weeks we will work, either with an old painting or photo, and possibly have a structure of some kind as a focal point. Then, more excitingly, we will pour the paint on and see what we can make of it.
