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.
