Studio details in visuals from this past week:
itty-bitty-batiked piece of paper, done a while ago, will be incorporated into current canoe series
newly reverse batiked boats awaiting sewn details
detail of sewing on one larger canoe paper piece
ditto, finally learned to do them french knots… an error I had made was to point the needle towards the surface, i.e. wrap towards the hole, instead of away from it….
Playing around with painting and pencil drawing on paper
making it more raw
paste paper on japanese paper, textural, rich, decadent… to be used with canoes
noro scarf, like so many others, except in seed stitch, my favourite
love the blending of colours, more mottled, and less defined rows than doing it the other way, i.e. in a rib pattern
the finished scarf, 4 balls total of noro used. I'm in love with it, sadly, nobody so far has commented on it… but I love it, love the colours, the feel, the texture, just everything.
Starting a completely new series of works, on paper, for framing, lower price point, for world domination (grin)
blurry, by intention, so they're protected….
details, pieces are worked on ancient (at least 60 year old paper, once used to house archival photographs at the Toronto archives. They threw out this lovely ledger-sized book last year, so I snatched it up.
What do you think… you like? I want to do some every week, because it's like DH said, if I do another 50 of them, I'll become very proficient.
