Minimal Person

Today I went to our PPASP meeting and met with my art pals in the "meeting after the meeting". We just sketch things that are on Carolyn's table (and/or things in our heads). To see what everyone else did....go HERE.

Man, you packed your schedule with TONS of meetings! That kind of a day takes a lot of endurance and you've got it by the buckets!!

I always enjoy minimalistic renderings - you can say so much with so little! Nice job.

Amazing what you can do with a few lines and one color, Celeste. I think this is another awesome piece you've turned out. I did visit the other blog and I love what you guys all did!

Your "minimal person" sketch makes me think of Matisse and his use of minimal line and shapes; less is more is my motto lately, this is beautiful in it's simplicity.

how do you use so few lines to make the minimal person ? this is why my figures look like *(&)^#%#% because I throw everything I have at the thing

Love the simplicity in your sketch. You captured it all in just a few strokes.
