Saw this cool photo on Flickr as a thumbnail. Couldn't really tell what it was that small but I thought the shapes were fabulous. On closer inspection discovered it was an interior shot of a shopping mall (I think.)
Went back to the thumbnail size and drew the major shapes then added additional bits to balance out the elements.
I wanted to capture this because I've watched a lot of painting shows where they talk about painting the major shapes and shadow shapes. My brain could never see the shapes, I could only see the details. When I saw the shapes in this photo I had an "Ah-ha!" moment.
New eyes now with which to see my world.
