ICAD2 #30 Mondrian Art

After researching the Mondrian style of art I picked up a random paper shape I had on my art table. 
The paper shape was a simple owl.

I traced the owl in the lower center of the index card then I used a ruler to create angular shapes inside and outside the owl outline.

I completed the Mondrian art prompt by coloring the shapes with the traditional Mondrian black, yellow, red, white, and medium blue.
