Flower Silhouette Thumbnails

So here I go with getting my Futurist flowers down on paper! I'm starting off with some silhouettes which I have formed by drawing out shapes on coloured paper then cutting them out and arranging them. Then using levels to take them to black in photoshop so that I can see the forms I have made easily.
For this set of thumbnails I focused on the Futurists' love for ellipses. Most of the shapes I made are variations on ellipses from stretched thin ones to fat rounder ones. I also made shapes based on ellipses like the 'bean shape'. These were made up by thinking about what an ellipse turned into if it was bent about.
I also focused on one type of flower form which is the solitary flower. I'm pretty happy to get 15 silhouettes of possible Futurist flowers from only ellipses and solitary flowers.
