Abstract Triangles in Oil Pastels
Here is an abstract I drew with oil pastels the other night. The book I mentioned in an earlier post talks about different shapes you can use in compositions, the triangle being one, along with L-shaped, diagonal, etc. Debora Stewart does say to never do diagonals from corner to corner, though, which is exactly what I did with washi tape in one of my recent goth ballerina mixed media pieces. But I still like mine and I think the positions I have the ballerinas in balances out the “division” of the canvas. But I do understand what she is saying.
I also know I went a little crazy with these triangles, and it is a “busy” piece. But I was “in the zone” and was mostly doing a color study. The pastel paper I used was light blue, so the colors came out either darker or too light, in the case of the yellows. Then lastly, I drew in the squiggles.
I hope everyone has had a great week and will enjoy your weekend!
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
