Solids challenge - so far


Finally, after finding and rejecting three other works of art, I have settled on Improvisation 7 by Kandinsky.  I love the warm colors and the lines of this painting.  The first thing I did was to cut out a 15" square of paper to check size as I sewed.  This is a bit different for me since I usually just sew pieces together until I think I have made enough for what I want.  For this one, however, I wanted to have the elements I am choosing to include in some semblance of the correct place.  I am choosing to interpret this painting rather than reproduce it. I am having great fun with this one.

I love what you've done so far. I'm convinced that Kandinsky would be a better subject for me than Matisse, because he has more detail that can be interpreted. Great job!

I think it's great fun that a few of us are using Kandinsky for inspiration! Love your progress, Miki. I had to quit yesterday as I was getting too bogged down in detail but, like you, totally enjoying the challenge.

Great start! Interpret is great! Just taking what inspires you from the image is perfect! whatever makes your creative juices stir! ;-) looks good so far!~

I love it! Kandinsky does allow a lot of freedom in interpretation!
