I Lied

I told you last week that you had seen the last of the color studies. But I lied.

Here’s one more. I didn’t particularly like my first orange and blue study so I did another one. This has a background fabric of silk noil covered with silk organza. You can’t see it here but I got the pattern of stitching from the pattern of dye on the silk organza. I used stem stitch and did three rows to give it more weight. I was considering filling the blue shape completely in with stem stitch but I like the balance of blue to orange at this point so I think it’s done. So perhaps this is the last one, maybe…

  1. I like the colour choice Ruth. I’m going against the crowd….whilst I too don’t think filling the blue in completely is right, I think one extra row of an even lighter blue will add more pop. Looking in detail it would then ‘fill’ a couple of areas giving the play/contrast of some solid areas against the delicacy of the meandering line.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
