Acrylic abstraction

Believe it or not, this acrylic ink painting started out as a drawing of a camel. It clearly wasn’t going anywhere and someone suggested that I should try and be more abstract. I over-painted the whole thing in what was meant to be a parody of geometrical abstraction, but by the time it was finished, I quite liked it. The white acrylic ink lines give it a texture which makes it more vibrant. If you look carefully at the original (but not on this digital image I’m afraid) you can still just about see the camel…
