a dud

This design came from my sketch book from a few months ago. It was actually created on the iPad with the Adobe Ideas app, in which one can just draw with the finger and then play with colors and whatnot. Anyway, it looked much better in the application. When I was drawing it out full size on brown paper, I wasn't really paying attention to the original proportions. Just too eager to get started on a new piece, I guess.

Be more mindful next time. Sometimes failure is a good motivator.

"floating nude"
2014, 12" x 12", hand appliqu├ęd and hand quilted. In the first drawing, the central protagonist was larger and more curvaceous. Maybe I'll just make it again in different colors to get it right.
