Pablo Picasso Month - Day 6

I've started drawing more preparation sketches for mosaics. But I rarely follow my drawings with any clear intent... the drawings are only meant to get me started. They're just ideas... places to start from, not destinations to arrive at.
An idea is a point of departure and no more. As soon as you elaborate it, it becomes transformed by thought.
~ Pablo Picasso
The current mosaic is a bit of an exception. I want/hope to follow my drawings closely - I think it's because I really like what I've gotten down on paper.

I'll probably still end up deviating from the drawing though... following wherever inspiration takes me.

Why Pablo Picasso Month?
