F is for Fracturing

I took a painting class this summer which included several lessons in fracturing images in the style of different artists.

 As a result, I have been intrigued by using lines to break up shapes - making them both more abstract, and yet staying true to their original form.

When I work in this way, I am confident that interesting things will result. This my artist's attitude of letting what wants to appear, happen onto the page.

This image is an experiment in fracturing simple flower forms. I think the colors - the compliments and the light and dark work well together.

I drew in Caran D'ache Watersoluble crayons and then wet all to create this watercolor feel.
