Abstract sketching: winter garden

Sometimes I like to experiment with abstract art – just going one step further and play with patterns, colors and symbols.

You start out with something in mind, and then it starts to change in something else… it doesn’t mean it’s getting worse necessarily – just different….

It reminds me of what happens in real life: not always things develop as we would expect them to – and often we find out later, what it was good for.

I like doing the exercise – looking at the whole drawing, but then also look for the different interesting parts, and how they work on their own.

Here I started out with a collage that became a bit wilder as I went along- take a walk through the winter garden and discover the little details peaking out under the snow.

Free running mind, just playing

As I started out this year thinking quite hard about all the goals to achieve, the directions to take, the priorities to set, it all got a little intense and I decided to take a break and just draw whatever came out. Sketching without thinking too much, just letting things go….

I found some details in these quick drawings that I found quite interesting – just taken on their own as abstract pieces.Have a nice week and don’t forget to play!
