New Abstract Drawing with Landscape Composition

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

In this new abstract drawing I used a sweeping "landscape composition" similar to the previous drawing with fall colors.  Instead of making this one with spots of color, however, I used the large end of my calligraphy pens to make broad zig-zagging lines across the paper.  Then I overlapped colors, moving from dark red to greens at the bottom and light red to orange, yellow and paler shades at the top.

To provide more interest and structure, I used a fine-point black pen to outline some of the negative spaces and paler calligraphy marks.
