I have also been working on a special project that I can't share at this time but will in a few weeks...
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... today, I thought I better post before you all think I went off into la-la land. I have an artist friend taking a class and she was telling me that her assignment was to do an abstract... YIKES was my thought. After so many things going on and no time to paint, I thought, why not try an abstract journal page??? Seriously, why not??? So, for Sunday Sketches I will share my page!!! Thanks to Sophia for hosting... I have learned so much from all the artists' that share their work on her site!!!
Wikipedia says this about abstract art : Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Western art had been, from the Renaissance up to the middle of the 19th century, underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality.
With this in mind, and that I have been doing exercises from some of my art books trying to understand techniques with layering better... I decided to combine some of my practice to this page. So, I have been putting paint to paper for the last few weeks... just doing random exercises from books... I want to get better but don't have a schedule that allows me to take a formal class as I would like. You do what you can and keep moving forward! Not exactly what I invisioned but at least I tried it!
