abstractionPencil, 1994

This was a fun project that forced me to do abstract art.  It is included mostly because it was a milestone in my artistic development.  It forced me to look at shapes and values more.  It is also a wonderful project, one that I would use with my students.  The whole concept is to take an image, render it as realistically as possible, then over the course of four more images, start to simplify it into its component shapes, eventually playing with the shapes to form a pleasing composition.
