New Abstractions

Those of you who follow this blog know that along with the life drawings that I’ve recently done using the iPad and Procreate app, I’ve also been working on a series of abstract compositions created with the same tools. Below are the latest three drawings. I really enjoy using multiple textures in overlapping layers to create complex patterns and shapes. At the same time I try to make a unified and balanced composition. These were done as the earlier abstracts, i.e. built up and evolving gradually in an improvised free flowing manner.
