Paul Klee Copy—They’re Biting

Copy of Klee's They're Biting

I was taught that sometimes copying something can provide you with valuable insight. On various courses we were encouraged to copy parts of images to get into the mindset of an artist or learn their technique. This copy of my favourite Klee is poorly executed, the background is nothing like his for example, but all I wanted to do was get right in there with the doodle parts. I used fine liners where I probably should have used proper pen and ink. I don’t care though, I wanted to explore his shapes and visual quality, and I had a lot of fun with it!
