Here are examples of non-objective, abstract, and more realistic styles of drawing.
|"Crayola Crayon Pad: Drawing 23"|
Jordan Sibayan. Pencil and Crayon.
Jordan Sibayan. Pencil. 2009
This drawing is from a collection of graph paper pages, and I consider it to be abstract. Abstract art takes a subject and morphs or changes it enough to exaggerated features. Abstract art also mixes and matches different subjects, such as I have with this drawing.
|"Sax Sketch Diary: Kangaroos"|
Jordan Sibayan. Colored Pencil.
This drawing comes from a sketchbook I used during one of my high school drawing classes. I feel there are more than one name for drawings like these, such as observational or realistic, and they tend to replicate, as close as possible, the world around us, via the artist's interpretation
I chose these drawings to better explain the difference between non-objective abstract and observational art.
After referring some old art class notes, "observational art" should actually be representational art.
