This cockatoo art was inspired by the low poly geometric artwork that’s been featured on the internet and on home decorating shows. As I hadn’t done anything creative for a while I decided to look up some tutorials on low poly art. I followed the one below and created the Cockatoo from a photo that I took in my backyard.
It was quite fun to do, and I suppose if you had the time you could make something like this into a patchwork cushion or applique it onto a blanket.
Geometric low poly art tutorial
I used this tutorial on YouTube by Isometric Obsession. They made it so easy. Prior to that I thought you needed to use some kind of special filter, but you don’t. It takes a bit of time, but any creative pursuit is quite meditative for me so I actually enjoyed making it.
Cockatoo art – download for free
If you don’t want to try making a low poly artwork yourself, you can download my Cockatoo artwork below. The file is 8×10 and high resolution to print and frame. Please send a picture or post it on my Facebook page if you use it to hang up in your room.
I’ve also been playing with other low poly ideas to make colourful backgrounds which could be used to print fabric or wrapping paper at places like Spoonflower.
