Shop Announcement:

Hello and welcome to HRNicholsonart.

My favourite style is abstract as I love the diversity and freedom to create whatever I feel the canvas wants. I have started to do more watercolour landscapes and flowers as well as creating drawings using pen and watercolour, pen and ink and also charcoal.

In my shop you will find a wide variety of paintings and drawings as well as some cards printed from my original drawings.

If you have any questions regarding any of my creations please get in touch via the contact page and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Thank you for visiting HRNicholsonart

Original acrylic abstract painting, Headlong, - folksy

Original acrylic abstract painting, Headlong,  - folksy

Love this


I painted this abstract using a palette knife and then pouring lines of paint over the top to give the painting a bit more action.

Size: 14 x 18 inches.

The colours are nice and bright and it would look good against a plain background.

No need to frame as the edges are painted black to give the impression that it is already framed.
All original artwork, prints and photographs of my artwork are copyright of myself, the artist, Helen Nicholson, even when sold.
My artwork may not be copied, scanned or printed in any format without prior permission of myself.
As the original artist I retain the right to use copies or parts of any of my artwork sold or unsold.

Free postage within the UK and Europe.


I chose some lovely bright colours and put on a Queen CD. Headlong was playing and I added the colours to the canvas, choosing them in the order I felt like as I was going along. I used a palette knife to manoeuvre the paint around the canvas in sweeping moves to the music. The song made me feel full of energy and I feel that this comes across in the painting with the final flourishes of paint poured in lines across the top using a swinging motion.
