Today’s Painting

My Abstract expressionist painting today

the painting “Storm” has an abstract expressionist feel to it

Started this morning with colors that I seem to have used before but  haven’t had much success and  I thought I was going down the same track,  but to my surprise,  outside in perfect light for the camera  (cloudy )  I’ve decided I like them, this time they’re working for me.

I shall add a touch more magenta which worked well but  was covered by the layer of blue. It has a feel of a storm or something in nature to me.


About Dawn Lim

I am a professional, visual artist, located at Moonambel , Victoria, Australia. I paint Abstract Paintings because I want to create not just copy, and I use oil and acrylic paint by preference, on stretched canvas. I also teach Art in all the different genres of painting and drawing eg Portraits, Landscape, still life, and Abstract art in most mediums. Born in England, I am a self-taught artist from childhood. Due to an experience of illness in my late teens I found myself in the category of an Outsider Artist. Making my home in Australia I studied painting, majoring in abstract art and graduating with honours at University. I enjoy following the Surrealist technique of making marks and seeing where they lead me, Currently with my husband I am operating an Art gallery and retreat with a restaurant in the Pyrenees wine district of Victoria.
