This work is a part of a series of basketball paintings. The series started as a way to try my hand at painting for the first time. I was pushing myself to not draw something immediately recognizable, just organic shapes. However, there was still a part of me that wanted to add some familiarity to the painting. The basketball is essentially a circle with three lines in it, I can make any organic shape, and add these lines to it, and it still resembles a basketball.
