30 Days of Art: Day 30 (Abstracts)

Sketchbook - small abstract acrylic painting on paper“Sketchbook”

How do you sketch an abstract? I generally don’t. But with all the lines, and scratch marks and layers of work I began to think of some of my sketchbooks and their linear qualities.

Sketchbooks are places for works in progress, for hashing out ideas – they are places I tend to write things I don’t want to forget. (I have yet to lose a sketchbook). My process for abstract paintings is a lot like working in a sketchbook – layers of trying things out.  Trying things out is what this whole adventure has been about – especially this series.
