#6 - small study ABSTRACT STUDIES

Periodically, I devote some studio time to small abstract studies. Often I begin with a a subject in mind, but occasionally a spontaneous drawing is the genesis. A variety of media is used, from oils and acrylics to colored pencils. These little studies provide a great diversion from the other work and have a rejuvenating effect on the creative process.
