I have an older sister who used to let me follow her when I was a kid. She was interested in Space Science and so, I would become interested in that too. In grammar school, when I had to write what I wanted to be when I got older, I declared, ‘Artist or Astronaut’ much to my teacher’s amusement.
So, recently, my sister took an art class at her local library, “the first one since elementary school” where the students were told to shade the other half of the photograph upside down. Instead of seeing it as a face, they would see the face as basic shapes (that’s how I see the reason for it, anyway). Well, I think she did an amazing job and that it was blog worthy. Will have to try this technique out for myself.
