I discovered a wonderful interactive book this week, called THE ART DOODLE BOOK by Abrams Image, New York. It is kind of a color book for artists, and gives inspirational images by a variety of famous artists, and encourages you to try something of your own in that style.  This is my first try! As you can see, they printed a single eye on a blank page.  I chose to do what I call 'Mother and Child', using a ball point pen, trying to simplify my lines to pure form, as Picasso so brilliantly does in his paintings.  I am pleased with the results, though I think it came out rather like a 60's psychodelic poster.  If I were to paint it, would I go with hot pinks and dayglo orange?  You bet!
