This abstract was inspired by Becky Wood over on Twitter. She makes a small piece of art every day — I’ve given up trying to do specific daily practice, it just doesn’t work for me — and changes the style or theme every month.
March’s theme used a bold stroke of colour over a background colour or pattern, but of course I couldn’t keep it that simple. I do like how the gilded oval turned out, and the black dots, but I should have stopped before adding the red lines.
I have come to like abstract art a lot more than I used to, though I am a long way from understanding what makes the difference between a piece that I love and one that does absolutely nothing for me. And that makes creating abstract art tricky.
