Today I am still improving myself to draw abstract. I draw random shapes and colored it using color pencil with different tone to show emotion to the drawing.

Abstract is all about shapes. Each shape in an abstract drawing is communicating to its own meaning. Use shapes to:

•Organize information through connection and separation

•Symbolize different ideas

•Create movement, texture, and depth

•Convey mood and emotion

•Emphasize and create entry points and areas of interest

•Lead the eye from one design element to the next

         Abstract shapes have a recognizable form, but are not real. They are stylized or simplified versions of organic shapes. A stick figure is an abstract shape depicting a person. Typographic glyphs are abstract shapes to represent letters. Icons are abstract shapes to represent ideas and concepts. Some abstract shapes have near universal recognition.
