a journal: textiles, inspiration, musings

second Monet sample

I based this one   on Monet’s painting Impression, Sunrise.I used my watercolour pencils again to try to capture the colours, then translated that into threads. I used a piece of transfer-painted satin with a “drizzle” print on it as a background.

I am happier with this sample because the background fabric allows a more luminous sense of light to show through the stitching.
