For those who think they aren't good at creating abstracts, I have created 3 easy lessons on creating successful abstract designs in any media. If you are interested, you can find "Lesson 1: Color" by clicking HERE. Lesson 1 has a link to "Lesson 2: UNITY" which has a link to "Lesson 3: ADDING VARIETY."
An Oldie, but Goodie
This is something I created a long time ago. Instead of using a photo, I scanned an object and then manipulated it into an abstract creation.
