Abstract and Abstract Realism Discussion Group
This group was started on August 2nd, 2012 and currently has:
Abstract Art: Art that does not attempt to represent external, recognizable reality but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures. (source: wiki)
Abstract Realism: A form can be seen, not quite abstract, not quite realism. (source: wiki)
No photographs unless they look Abstract in some form. Please be careful of the subject of you images. No sexual content. Nudes welcome!
Please, only submit 3 images a day if you are just posting images to the group. You may post as many images as you like in the discussion area providing each image has its own discussion thread. Thanks.
Also, please make a separate post for each image. That just works out better for the artist AND the group.
As a new member:
1) Please introduce yourself in the discussions area by starting a new thread.
2) Submit your artwork (when you\'re ready)
3) Submit your daily favorite from a fellow artist in the daily favorite discussion. (not required but a nice thing to do).
This is a discussion group, Please support your fellow members and vote and comment on their work, and take part in the discussions.
We use the comments here to grow and learn as artist, share our progress, and to support each other. PLEASE stop by the \'discussion\' portion of the group and comment...share your wisdom and experience, learn something you did not know, encourage and promote each other. (When you comment, favorite, and vote on a piece, it brings that artist more exposure. Something we all need!)
If you would like others in the group to critique your work. Just add \'comments and critiques welcome or C&C welcomed\' Courtesy and respect are required. Those being disrespectful, be it the person asking for critique or giving it, will be removed. There will be no warnings.
