Picasso Challenge

 Here is a photo of my piece I made for our group's Picasso challenge. It's my hubbie on his tractor. And I have to say it looks just like him! LOL
It was fun putting this together. I didn't spend a lot of time on it thus the use of packing tape but it was fun.

This is the sculpture by Picasso that inspired me. I have never really liked his paintings so when I was looking him up online, I searched under sculpture. And this intrigued me. So I tried a cardboard sculpture. Have you studied any artist's work and then done something in their style? My local group is doing just that each month. It's been interesting.

I didn't realize Picasso did sculptures, or if I did I forgot. Interesting.

I didn't know Picasso did sculptures either! The tractor is joyful and it makes a change to make something in a different medium doesn't it?

I thought I replied to this last week, sorry.
I did a lot of Jackson Pollock style paintings many years ago :)
Trying out abstracts for Ann's studio challenge created a few Picasso style faces, which were quite funny. The tractor looks great, it worked really well.
