This one has turned out to be one of my favorites that I've done so far. Not only did it turn out better than I had expected - it was the most fun of all the techniques I've tried.
Abstraction is such a huge step out of my comfort zone, but with each step that I've taken so far I am so glad that I took them. And for the first time in a long time, I really feel like I'm growing as an artist.
I am always open to more ideas and would love to hear from you. What you are doing to step out and grow as an artist?
