Nature provides us with the best examples of abstraction.  Today’s examples are of rock patterns from Penguin, a lovely little town on Tasmania’s NorthWest Coast.

It’s amazing how many compositions one can derive from each rock. Such examples require a lot of decision making and it’s not a matter of copying everything you see. As with all artwork, there needs to be a balance –  a focal point.

There are so many examples available to choose from that one needs to take the time to study what’s available and see the potential in each design.

I source all of my abstract art from Nature, because they are examples of ‘real’, not imaginary art. I like to work with what I know more than what I imagine. For a lot of artists the opposite applies, but this is what makes art so diverse, so unique.
