a journal: textiles, inspiration, musings

back to chapter 9

after  the backtracking and side – tracking it’s back to the chapter 9 exercises. Some of these already appeared on the photo of the sketchbook page previously, but shall show them in more details with notes:

playing with primaries: the lines of zigzag are fairly dull but interest can be added by playing with the proportions. The dominant colour can be manipulated by using it proprtionally more than the others. I like the effect of using 2 colours in similar proportions and the third as a highlight or contrast. The zigzag sample is too heavy for my taste and I think the use of open auto stitches adds a lightness and interest of line.

The secondary colours make a more interesting and subtle sample…the colours seem to attract the eye into the work instead of jumping out at the viewer.
