For a short while (3)

Abstract art: A trend in painting and sculpture in the twentieth century. Abstract art seeks to break away from traditional representation of physical objects. It explores the relationships of forms and colors, whereas more traditional art represents the world in recognizable images. Source:

I am interested in abstraction in art but do not really have a process for doing it. While what I have done here is hardly abstract, it feels like a start.

I have started with an observational drawing – a third attempt at the same subject – trying to simplify tones and shape. The second is not really a cohesive drawing but more about breaking the subject into its smallest part and simplifying each part. It is still representational but moving along the continuum towards abstraction. I shall try to move it along.

A tiny ramble here. Sometimes art process is better left unsaid.

This Iceland Poppy, by the way, has dropped all its petals. Gorgeous while it lasted.
