From Figurative to Abstract

I have been looking through my paintings over the past two years and here are the first and the last from different places. You can see how I started with a figurative picture and moved into an abstract painting. It takes me a long time, as I have just started doing this and have a lot to learn. Sometimes I do 50 or more pieces of work, not all good, but this is what keeps me wanting to go on, to go back and do more.

"Red Space in Forest" Abstract. Oil on Canvas. 65cm x 50cm.
