Monday Muse - Cy Twombly

Another abstract artist that I love is Cy Twombly. His works have a frenetic energy about them that makes them so delightful to look at. Some of the paintings can be described as minimal. The color palette and strokes and marks are quite restrained in terms of variety. That doesn't mean to say his works are boring. Other paintings have a lot of variety and there is a strength to the painting as a whole, as well as lots of little interesting moments happening within the canvas. The canvas has so much movement and rhythm expressed on it. There is also a childlike quality to Twombly's art. It feels as though he approached the canvas and experimented with different colors and strokes and let the composition flow freely. My favorite paintings by him are ones that have a lot of little brushstrokes and colors that make your eyes dance across the canvas. I see a lot of elements that I would like to incorporate into my work in the future. 

I hope you enjoy these works by Cy Twombly!
