There are TONS of videos on YouTube if you are looking for inspiration or instruction regarding abstract art. The following video has been on my favorites list for years. If you find any that are especially cool, please post a link on the Videos page here so we can all have a look :)
This art prompt is right in line with some weird things I have already been doing. Ever since I began learning about neural pathways, I’ve been intentionally stepping outside my comfort zone and living more by intent rather than habit.
I have been doing all sorts of little things like:
- flipping my hair to the opposite side
- crossing my legs the opposite way that I am used to or simply not at all
- folding my hands together differently
- I even have put my mouse on the left side of my keyboard when I am not in a hurry and have time to fumble around lol
Why give drawing with your non dominant hand a try?
In switching the pen (or pencil) from the right hand to left, you access a different part of your brain, the left side of the brain governs the analytical while the right side governs the artistic.
Not totally sure what that means for the lefties out there? That's actually a great topic for the Forum if anyone feels like striking up a conversation!
So glad you made it! This website is a community for artists to take classes, participate in challenges, share work, receive feedback, fellowship, and inspire one another. Expect to enjoy random vlogs, freebie tutorials, work-in-progress photos, music, articles, interviews, and whatever else I come across that might help inspire you along your journey! Thanks for signing up.
Congratulations Marcy LaBella! Thank you for participating. You won yourself a new sketchbook!
