a bit of weaving and even some embroidery.
The drawings were my first efforts at exercises from ‘Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain’ – and though I claim that this is a ‘warts and all’ blog, there are some blemishes which are just too nasty to reveal.
This is the weaving – the return of the demented kite, with an extra strut, two more warps and a selection of wefts.
When Jae Maries writes about this in her book she tells you to pull the warps tight – and she’s right. Otherwise they get looser and looser and looser.
This is looking too heavy for my liking – but after all it’s ‘only a sample’.
And this is the embroidery – it isn’t really quite this pale. The simplified faces don’t work in stitch – but it’s another sample!
You have seen this page from my sketchbook before, but I’ve added a [shiny] photo of the primary source [got to get primary and secondary sources right for the degree]. I drew the arrangement from a CT installation and then cut up the drawing to make the stencil I used for the page. Got that?
