My first attempt at creating the barn wasn't too great. So in an attempt to get the shape, like the dog I put a picture of a barn into Photoshop and traced over before cutting away into the block colours to get something which represented Miro's work more. I was also advised to try working to a larger scale. I've also aquired a book called 'Draw With Joan Miro' which has been very helpful in giving me an insight on how to use shapes to create my work.
To also push my ideas, I've tried experimenting with different coloured backgrounds.
