Although I'm still waiting for my sari ribbon and fibers to arrive, I worked quite differently with this piece than I have in the past. A little more free form and concentrated more on 'thread painting', adding organza and other textural elements with beads, and embroidery thread and sewing in other fibers.
First some just for fun macros -
Below is a photograph above and a scan below - the scan is the most recent and almost finished piece.
And here it is on paper, digitally -
I've already decided on my next project - it's hopefully.....fingers crossed, going to be a painting of my daughter's cat - Paris and the next in line after that is a painting of her girlfriend. These are, as you can see! drafts of the photographs 'altered' digitally which I have found helpful in the past to start envisioning the final piece.
Thanks for visiting!!!!!!!
