I've been feeling pretty stuck artistically I have so much that I want to do that I'm feeling overwhelmed by it all. So I spent some time making a couple of abstract pieces in my sketch book to help me loosen up and get out of my "formula" for a little bit.

Cool! Good for you for thinking it then actually doing it. I always wanted to sketch more, I buy books that just sit there mostly empty though. I started joining the ATC swap to push me to do more paper crafts, a deadline seems to really help get me out of a rut. It's uncomfortable and awesome all at the same time, lol.

I'm not online as much as I used to be, don't panic if it takes a while for me to reply to things Smiley.

I haven't done that in a long time, but, it can be fun to just draw random whatever sometimes.  The first one appeals to me more, as I prefer the spiral/loop/curve shapes to the more geometric ones in the second sample, but, they're both colorful and visually interesting.

craftylittlemonkey: Thanks for liking them. I have so many half used sketchbooks! I also find that deadlines can help me out of a rut, but occasionally they make me panic  Roll Eyes Soooo I have to be careful what I choose. I found that doing these studies...I find myself wanting to recreate them on a larger scale...really helps me see colors and shapes a bit differently, andafter I've done one I feel ready to tackle my other more realistic projects.

Patraw: Thank you so much for liking them. The first one is my favorite too. I liked the way it felt while I was doodling. The second one was kinda hard to share because it was so much more personal because it was a reflection of my state of mind at the moment. Colorful but chaotic and somewhat sharp and hemmed in.
