Gearing up for a new commission with a small composition study on canvas panel. The collector is very interested in the new work which is encouraging. The format is 60" tall x 12" wide so the geometries will demand a custom composition. #artoftheday #artcommission #artcollector #painting #mixedmedia #contemporaryart #originalart #commission #newwork #circles #geometric #geometricart #architecturalart #challenge #artgallery #abstractpainting

The great thing about being an artist is that you can paint on anything. Even a skateboard which I've been doing since 2012. It is hanging on the easel with my patented and trademarked skateboard hanger called Deck Dock. Skateboards as art. #art🎨 #skateboard #skateboardart #artistsofinstagram #abstractart #artoftheday #mixedmedia #kenbermanart #art #artcurator #artcollector

I'm just about done with this one called 'Every Color Is A Good Color'.

Detail of the underpainting layer using a palette knife. Love the mottling effect when I mix in a little impasto medium. #detail #artoftheday #artwork #circles #impasto #underpainting #wip #kenbermanart #mixedmedia #amazing #fun #happy

Next WIP. The photo doesn't do the blue shape much justice ... it's more of a muted turquoise with a hint of sfumato. #artstudio #artworld #artistsofinstagram #abstractart #arte #artoftheday #art🎨 #abstractrealism #abstractpainting #artist #artistsoninstagram #artcollector #artcurator #artsy #architectural

Next WIP in the series. Introducing #7. I'm really getting into the essentials now which I can already tell will open up a world of possibilities with scale, color, etc. I really like the lighting on the ochre sphere on this one. #artstudio #artworld #artistsofinstagram #abstractart #artoftheday #mixedmedia #kenbermanart #art🎨 #abstractrealism #abstractpainting #artgallery #artwork #wip #wipart #artlovers #arts #artoninstagram

Another WIP with muted colors for the shapes and spheres. Slight inclined plane is adding some interest. #artstudio #artworld #artistsofinstagram #abstractart #arte #artoftheday #art🎨 #abstractrealism #abstractpainting #artist #artgallery #artwork #art #kenbermanart #mixedmedia

Glaze layers 3 & 4 starting to build the spatial depth with form shadow and cast shadow. Painting opaque paint into the transparent and semi-transparent glaze medium is so important as the glaze starts to resist the brushstrokes. The Renaissance painter Titian recommended 30 - 40 glazes ... some of which were almost indistinguishable from the base layer but optically it could make the difference. Now I have to come up with a name for the piece. #artstudio #artoftheday #abstractpainting #abstractrealism #kenbermanart #mixedmedia

Started working on the next canvas while I wait for the other one to dry. This one is already into the second layer. Compositionally, I like the little red ball off to the side reaching for that left edge. I'm going to see where it takes me. #artstudio #artoftheday #abstractart #arte #art🎨

Second layer on this WIP. Building off of the first layer of positive and negative space with subject matter and hierarchy. #artstudio #artworld #artistsofinstagram #abstractart #artoftheday #abstractrealism #abstractpainting #artist #artgallery #artwork #art #abstractartist #kenbermanart #bermanesque
