It has been a long time since I last posted, oops! I have been working though, honestly. I just need to get back into the habit of documenting things.
Towards the end of September I started a new tapestry based on a small watercolour, oil pastel and pencil sketch I made capturing reflected light on a shoreline edge. The original sketch is roughly 14cm/ 5 1/2 inches square and the finished tapestry will be roughly 74cm/ 29 inches square.
There are lots of subtle colour and tonal blends and painterly marks to translate which is making it complicated to weave, especially since I haven't done any weaving since my last tapestry "tracing waves" in 2016. What can I say, I was clearly feeling artistically ambitious this year.
I haven't taken many progress shots but here are a few of my set up and some weaving details.
I've finally hit the half way mark which is very exciting. The other half, in theory, should be easier to weave so who knows, I might be finished by Christmas!
