Sketchbook Saturday Vol. 001

Every week, I’ll try and post some work from my sketchbook. This is just practice and dedication to bettering myself as as an abstract painter. Like my other weekly updates, they are open for feedback. Part of the reason I made this blog is to connect with other artist and show progress with my work.

This week has been filled with lots of drama and tooth ache. I haven’t really worked much on my ‘studies’. ┬áLast week I broke out the oil pastels and worked on blending and just trying to get comfortable using them. Youtube is my friend when it comes to learning basic techniques with oil pastels. Its not my medium of choice, but I love the vibrant colors they produce. I plan on working more with them this week.

I also worked on some line drawings. I’m working on being more free with my idea process and more open to using color. I found my old design book and been working on layering and textures, which Ill post next week.
