Sketch for Abstract

I can’t resist buying art supplies. I work at a framing shop, which makes it even harder since I get a discount. I started doing preliminary drawings for my watercolors in a new sketch book. Instead of containing white sheets, it is filled with ivory-colored paper. I like it a lot.

Here is my sketch for Abstract o91316. I used charcoal and oil-based pens for this study. (The paper is a little to light to accept watercolors, so I use the colored pens for shading.) I’m still investigating the use of hard and soft edges (see Face: Edge and No Edge and Edge/No Edge) based on my readings about the brain and perception (see The Brain and Art).
