This is the image I’m using for three projects I’m working on. This has been cut from the October Colour Palette and I want to use it for a series of tapestries for a workshop for Melbourne Arts Festival.
I’m also working on the Sketchbook Project 2012 and have chosen Stitches and Folds as my theme. The fungi image really spoke folds and so I want to explore woven shibori and double cloth to produce designs for interiors fabrics.
Above are the initial colour study in water and the rough textural study for the projects. I always start with water colour, but I’m now off to look at an acrylic colour study and a collage.
