two of the five panels have been commenced – i am combining stitch on paper with drawing, charcoal, pastel, watercolour , bible pages on plywood. It is very liberating – stitch provides a line like no other!
last week I took my sewing machine into the life studio – usually i draw directly onto canvas or linen and then stitch – on thursday I stitched directly onto the canvas – trying to capture movement and feeling – the colour is watered down acrylic applied to the back of the canvas This is the result after several more hours of stitching.
Sometimes you think a piece is finished – but it is incredibly important to live with something for a little while before you finally make up your mind
