In this art lesson we talk about how to finish an abstract artwork. Using an example of student work we discuss: is it finished? How do you know when it’s finished?

I talk about movement and why it’s important to take time to study the work and how our eyes travel through the piece.

We also discuss how to consider and apply negative space in an abstract work.

Lastly, I share a way to see if your work feels balanced.

Now it’s your turn: what helps you decide when your abstract work is complete? Share your ahas and comments below.
