Today’s challenge is a really fun idea, courtesy my friend Cathy Nieman and I can’t wait to get started on this myself today. Remember, an abstraction takes a recognizable image and transforms it in an imaginary way to create something new. Here’s Cathy’s great idea:
Magazines or coloring book pages
Glue or glue stick
Pencil, markers or crayons
Find magazine image or coloring book page
Cut image in half or use part of an image or drawing
Glue a piece onto your drawing paper
Draw the other half. Unleash your imagination!
Paint if you wish or transfer the idea to a watercolor paper. Have fun! Add collage! Add lines, markers, get silly!
Hint: put the original source page away so you’re not tempted to just recreate the original design
