As a viewer of abstract paintings, ask yourself the following questions:
Am I trying to figure out what it looks like or represents rather than allowing something to emerge from what I see in front of me?
What are the elements, colours, and textures of the painting?
How do these interact with each other?
What emotions do the painting evoke?
What is the title of the painting and how is this influencing what I see?
Have I allowed enough time to make a connection with painting?
