Contour Cutting Exercise 2/Color & Composition

Here is my new still life. Had to create a new one!


Here is the Contour Cutting of a Realistic Design:


We were to cut identical shapes and create an abstract design that is vertical, horizontal, circular, diagonal, radiating, grid, framed/border, symmetrical or asymmetrical. Then we are to ask a friend which one it is to verify that we have actually done that composition. So I am asking you – what composition is this?


I am going to do the stitching stuff tomorrow before my still life goes south again!!

    The new moons and rings just discovered around Uranus?

    Boing boing post on the rings is here: http://www.boingboing.net/2005/12/22/nasa_hubble_discover.html

    I like your fabric choice for the apple in the first one – very apple looking.

    “What is circular?” (The Jeopardy response)

    I think circular. Could be radiating I guess, but it seems to me like if you were going for radiating the little straight pieces would be perpindicular to what they are now.

    I’m loving seeing these exercises on the blogs of all you who are doing them!

  4. Debra says:

    radiating? in a circular fashion?
    We aren’t any help to you, are we??

  5. I’m gonna have to go out on a limb and say circular too 😉 Nice fabric choices too.

  6. Deborah says:

    well, circular of course. Or maybe radiating. These exercises are so interesting and I’ve enjoyed seeing all the different variations! So glad you had happy holiday celebrations.
