From Chapter One:

Lyric Kinard explains the elements of Abstract Design (lines, shapes, movement) and how you can incorporate these into your work. She gives Alex and Ricky a lesson in abstract design featuring just a pair of scissors. She also shares student examples.

From Chapter Two:

Lyric shares her latest work and talks about her quilts. She loves creating portrait quilts, which often come from a memory, poem, or photos.

From Chapter Three:

As an artist Lyric studied architecture, but admits to struggling with the human figure, especially the face. So she challenged herself to draw a face a day for an entire year. Using 3” x 5” index cards, the faces began to improve as time went by. She discusses "mapping out" the human face.

From Chapter Four:

TQS tours the Camp Sherman home and studio of Tonye Belinda Phillips. Known for her whimsical folk art creations, Tonye shares tips for creating the perfect hand appliqué points.

I loved this show with Lyric Kinard, especially the abstract drawing segment and the drawing faces segment. Would you consider putting a line drawing of the face features placement online so we could have a quick reference. Faces are something I have always been interested in drawing. Also, to LadyRags, you can find her pocket guide on Lyric's website.

Can you clarify the author, publisher of "Pocket Guide to Composition" I looked for it on AMAZON and could not find the book.

Love LYRICS faces segment ... I want to try it.

I love the way Ricky's abstract showed his design style. It plays on the style of Ricky's "Bohemia" designs but is different too. I will definitely be playing the "scissor game."
I also really appreciate Lyric for showing that abstract is not "terrifying" as so many people think - but that there is work and process to it.
