Excited

We all know about using a grid to help us with a drawing but I heard of an idea to grid a photo and turn it upside down then paint an abstract of each square one at time on your gridded canvas. I think that because it's upside down and you are focused to see each section abstractly the results could be very interesting. One reason I'm excited is because I found out how to grid my image on my computer making things simple so  I'm am ready and excited ( I think I said that" lol")

I'm with Gwen and Carolann...give us a tutorial. It is like Dali's gridded portrait of Lincoln? Curious about this. Keep us posted.

That's great...I used to teach my students to do that by hand...can't wait to see the finished product.
