Voices – Illustration Friday *

The challenge is to draw ‘Voices’ and my husband suggested that I do something abstract. I am not good in abstract and think it is a great idea for me to practice on making abstract drawings.


Voices | Acrylic on moleskine

I think the orange is a bit too saturated; will try to reduce the volume.

My moleskine;17 pages.
