Abstract Art, Expressive Pastel Drawings

April 14th, 2007 · 71 Comments

These are four works of expressive abstract art created with pastels. The color drawings are 9″ x 12″ and were created in the year 2004. Each is a tightly wound, but energetic, array of color and slight variations in texture. All are “Untitled” and are comprised of unique abstract geometric shapes.

    i love all the vivid colors. what is the drawing called?

  • 4 MDE-ART.com // Sep 22, 2007 at 8:58 pm

    Thank you for your comment. These are “Untitled” pastel and charcoal drawings. Sometimes, instead of titling abstract art, a preference is given to leaving it “Untitled”, and the art is allowed to speak for itself.

    the bottom picture i chose to do in my art portfolio thing i was just wondering if you could give me some tips on how you were inspired to do this and what teqniques you used as i have to write on the peice :)

    thankyou xxxxxxx

  • 16 MDE-ART.com // Dec 16, 2007 at 2:19 pm

    Hi Lilly, thank you for your comment. I was primarily inspired by pastel colors, as I had previously been working with only black, white, and sepia colors. While drawing I thought about vibrant bursts of pure color with slight variations in texture. Retrospectively, they are a visual representation of the “Big Bang” of an awaking awareness of color, which has been consistently applied in a more orderly fashion in subsequent artworks. For example, in this drawing of a face or more abstract surreal paintings.

  • 38 kristine // Dec 20, 2008 at 3:18 pm

    The shapes remind me of satellites and clocks and something that would normally have a dead mechanical feel to it but the colors flip it completely and bring it to life. They are so electric. I love these.

    The drawings aren’t priced. There is some more information about the artworks in the comments above; one even mentions the “explosion” of color you’re referring to. You can also check out the Biography page for an Artist Interview and other information. Good luck with your report! :)
