Crafty Exploits: Embroidery 2
Thought I would share a new embroidery with you today that I've been working on over the past wee while. This piece of work began as a series of drawings and screen-prints that I worked on a couple of years ago. The prints and drawings had a lot more blocked in colours particularly the sleeve, cuff and socks. The original drawings had a handful of teeth as well, individually shaded.
I wanted to try something a bit more linear so I tried to avoid the temptation of filling in large spaces with satin stitch and tried to use pattern instead to give depth.
I'll be working on a series of smaller embroideries over the next few weeks so keep your eye out for those...
