I wanted to find a way to teach practical stylisation techniques using an existing design style or art movement. The natural object is drawn from life (& direct observation). The drawing is then used as the basis for the final sketch. It is cut up & 'fragmented' to mimic the multiple visage points of cubism works. Colour is added to bind the various 'fragments' together again into a coherent design. The sketch came out a lot more yellow than anticipated, but I think the stylisation is quite successful. The medium is a combination of watercolour washes with coloured pencil.
