I figured I’d try to sketch some leaves and other images from a leaflet from Isabella plantation.
On the left is a chart I drew from 

Contemporary Quilts: Design, Surface and Stitch by Sandra Meech, from then on are pages where I’ve picked a few images from each of the suggested artists.

I’ve picked up quite a few things from looking at how Picasso, Klee and Van Gogh make marks. Rough marks contrasting against precise marks, marks creating movement and contrasts of colour within marks seem to appear in most of the images. I tried to make similar marks to get a feel for the overall style. I’m going to look at a few other pictures too to see what other impressions I get.
