Today’s post is going to be an exploration of how my art style has changed through the ages. Here are two versions of the same picture. The first one I made in the year 2005 when I was a teenager. This piece is typical of my art style in that year- with all of the thin lines and over stylized sense of proportion. (I found this out after comparing it to other pieces I made around the same time.)
The second is the same exact picture that I have altered (using sharpies, colored pencils, crayons and markers) to reflect my current art style. In the newer piece, I incorporated my new fondness for thick black lines, rich, dark color and central positioning of the subject. I also cropped the image, and placed it on a sturdier backing.
As a result of this little artistic experiment, I was able to breathe new life into a remnant of the past , while at the same time creating a new piece of art to decorate my art studio.
This was an interesting experiment, and I definitely encourage you to try it.
If you like my art or even just find it interesting, like my Facebook fan page to get updates about new works that I create or follow this blog @ annotatedaudrey.wordpress.com!
