Another sketchbook page done, an experiment with graphite, and an embroidery exercise with value.
Still enjoying markers, again on a Claybord, mixing ink and scratchboard techniques.
And to continue the chilly theme, here’s an exercise I completed for my embroidery class. This lesson was on value.
I’ve discovered that stitching with a stand is a very nice thing.
I’ve discovered stitching with linen thread gets my creativity going.
And I’ve discovered that embroidery may be the most forgiving art.
I’m pleased with this embroidery. I used Paternayan wool thread and a little Appletons with some sewing thread here and there. Late summer is shifting into early fall, so this will be my reminder of August.
