Happy Winter

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Abstract Snowman | by karen @ carefree creations

Lately I have been inspired by abstract-type art, where the subject is implied by color and small accents. [Like this one and this one.]

I decided this sketch lended itself to that style quite well. I had lots of ideas, but settled on a snowman. I had to add the branch arm though, because without it I kept seeing sweater (which honestly I still sorta do, and now you do too ;).

The buttons make this too bulky to mail, but I liked ’em too much not to use ’em.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little About the Challenge: This weekly challenge is posted on Thursday, and alternates between color and sketch (if there is a 5th week in the month you get the double dose of color & sketch).

  1. Interesting! Not heard of this abstract style before, but having followed the links I so see where you’re coming from. And it’s definitely the snowman I’m getting.
