Abstract Art, Expressive Pastel Drawings

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.

  1. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. So cool, I love all 4 of them, I have been wanting to be an artist since I was 5 but not anymore ๐Ÿ™ But art still really amazises me

  12. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I am just beginning to draw, I use color pencils. Now I am thinking about trying Charcoals Sticks, and pastels. I really do not know what the difference is between them. I don’t see what is wrong with any of your drawings. Holly made a terrible comment back in 2008. I see them as an inner self energetic image. I love them they look so cool.
