I have signed up forĀ an art course with Kate Thompson and I’m really enjoying it. This is the result of the first lesson; my first attempt at abstract art!

Abstract art

This was great fun to do and I am loving the result. I have decided to call it ‘Abysstract’ as the word ‘abyss’ conjured up everything I felt about this piece of work.

1. a deep, immeasurable space,
2. anything profound, unfathomable, or infinite: the abyss of time.
3. a subterranean ocean.

This piece is 12″ x 16″ on watercolour paper using a .5 mechanical pencil, a .3 fine line pen, charcoal, watercolour paint and collage. Includes scribbling to music which is very therapeutic.

I can see creature like shapes that appear to float across the surface. Not planned of course, but just happened. I would be interested to hear what you can see?

I need to find some more time now to try some more abstract art and also to delveĀ further into this great art course.
