wave palette and linear studies

Not so much a new direction, more like a return to my roots. I grew up doing a lot of tapestry, hardly surprising considering my mum is a weaver, but once I went to university I specialised in drawing and painting.

This year I decided to return to tapestry, after a 10 year sabbatical, as I have been struggling to resolve particular ideas and drawings through my usual approaches. These three, small pieces are like sketches for my final, larger piece which I started working on last month. This has helped me to brush up on my tapestry skills and sample colours. I'll post an update of the new piece in progress later in the week - it's starting to look exciting.
