Oval: In technical drawing an oval (from Latin ovum, ‘egg’) is a figure constructed from two pairs of arcs, with two different radii. Wikipedia

Oval: An oval is a curve resembling a squashed circle but, unlike the ellipse, without a precise mathematical definition. The word oval derived from the Latin word “ovus” for egg. Unlike ellipses, ovals sometimes have only a single axis of reflection symmetry (instead of two). Wolfram

See the Creative Prompt page if you have questions about this project.

Post the direct URL (link) where your drawing, doodle, artwork is posted (e.g. your blog, Flickr) in the comments area of this post. I would really like to keep all the artwork together and provide a way for others to see your work and/or your blog.

The Creative Prompt Project, also, has a Flickr group, which you can join to  post your responses. I created this spot so those of you without blogs and websites would have a place to post your responses.
