This is the result of the Outburst painting study that I did a few months back. I like the result and it was a fun challenge to work this large on a abstract painting.

Critique by JonnyPenn JonnyPenn/critique/972023740">Jun 19, 2014, 8:50:19 AM
Just want to warn you that this is my first critique on deviant art. Please forgive me if I format this weird or unconventionally.

Your use of paint creates a rich texture and adds to the raw quality of this piece. The colors you have used go fairly well together and create a great amount of contrast. The burgundy/red next to the white really makes it pop. I think you have to be careful with browns because they can quickly muddy things up, but because you used a dynamic range of them here (from tans, oranges, to dark browns) I think it works. In terms of your composition, personally I'm always a little wary of placing such a pronounced shape, color, or focal point (the large white area) directly in the middle but I think it works for the most part because the white reaches the border on one side which balances it out a bit. I think this piece becomes much more interesting because of the square fist-like shape in the top corner. From the way you've painted this I definitely get the sense of an outburst as your title says.

Overall I would say this is a pretty decent work that I'm sure would be even more impressive in person. I like how you let the paint be paint and how it creates a raw quality. Also, I like the idea of mixing your non-objective/abstract work with a hint of a defined shape like the squares in the top right corner. I think giving the viewer subtle hints of representation can be very effective and gives it a more contemporary feel. Anyways keep up the good work, I look forward to seeing more of your art.
