I did some sketching today - any idea what the above is supposed to be? My 6-year old thought it was a toothbrush ;-).
I was actually trying to abstract this image:
and quite surprised at how much you can take away and still keep the essence - although that may have been because I knew the image? I tried the same with the gymnast on pommel horse that I depicted in my Balance 2 quilt:
Of course this is the process they use for the pictograms at the Olympics etcetera... I would love to study graphic design! (maybe someday, when I have finished my PhD...)
I have also started on the Sketchbook Challenge for January - the theme is Highly Prized. I will show you some of my drawings soon.
