The other day I was feeling a little bored, so I decided to turn on Photoshop and play around with it. I decided to look through all of the custom shapes and pieced together an image (on the left) of two women. Even though shapes and features of the women are only lightly suggested, I thought that it still worked as a image of two people.
I really liked the bold colors and the graphic shapes. Using this as my inspiration I took out some paper and started to sketch. My idea was to portray a tea party using only the hair and lips of the attendants to create the scene. You can see the completed work below.
My thought for the positioning of the tea party guests is that you are looking at them sitting around a small circular table. The two in the back are naturally sitting forward and the three women in the front are turning in their seats to face forward.
I originally sketched a tea set in middle with cups around, but after finishing the women, I decided not to add anything more. I like the spots of color. I was thinking it would make a cute fabric print if it was laid out in a more linear fashion.
Thanks for looking!
