the Artist's Muse - Chapter 6/Challenge 6

I went to help my friend Carol set up her Exhibition at Lapford Mill last Thursday, as she is part of the Devonartworks 2007, which runs from the 8th-23rd September. Whilst there, I noticed these wheels leaning against the wall of the Mill, and took this photograph. Now you may be wondering what this has to do with Challenge 6 in the Artist's Muse Group, but one of the challenge choices was to take a photograph and create a piece of work using black and white fabrics, that is an interpretation of the photograph, either literally or in the abstract.
I changed the photograph to black and white on the computer, and printed a copy.
I traced all the interesting bits, drew an uneven grid all over it, then coloured in alternate black and white squares. I now have an abstract design, that I may work in fabric, or I could take just a section of it. Only time will tell..........!

Agree with Carols comments, have you ever tried doing any 'cubist' drawings. I had to do one for my Art course and was surprised with what I came up with.
