Branching Out

I’m looking at this drawing. I wanted to do something way different than my usual things, but I saw myself as the drawing progressed, falling back into my comfort zone. So how exactly do I branch out?

I have decided that I am going to start classifying my art. Abstract, Fairy tale, Zentangles, Mandala… and so forth. This way I can keep my art going and try not to confuse them all. I am not sure just how all of this will work out. I’m very comfortable with my mandalas and very comfortable with zentangles, but abstract art is a little more difficult.

I usually begin my abstract art with an idea. For this one, I wanted it to look almost alien, universal and even though clean lines, I wanted an element of futuristic edges. But as you can see, I went back to the organic stuff I’m used to doing. The curved edges, the leaves, circles, and flowers.

So here is my journey of finding myself through exploring all different forms of the drawn art.
