Approx 12cm x 12cm. Black Rotring pen, Inktense pencils with water wash and various iridescent/metallic watercolour paints on Bristol Board.
The shapes and were inspired by one of the previous little textile pieces, the filling patterns by Romanesque architecture, prehistoric pottery, natural forms.
Fun to do something this fiddly and fussy and completely potty!
Two teeny tiny little pieces of textile work. The photo doesn’t really show the sheen on the mohair that has been used in the needle-felting on the black felt background. They are approx 2″ square-ish. Copper thread has been used to add the lines and shapes, along with copper, gold and red beads.
The colour reminds me of autumn, but I also think it may be how I seen passionate love too. It has a wonderfully warm, deep, intense colour to it that I find quite irresistible, not a colour I would have usually loved. I think this could be becoming my favourite colour!
The lines remind me of contour lines on an OS Map. I feel a new source of inspiration for art coming on… maps and satellite and aerial imagery perhaps. I know my fingers have been fair twitching for paper and pens and inks and paints and pencils to use my textile work as an inspiration for other forms of art, so my textile work may become an inspiration for me too. How weird is that?
These may be for sale on Etsy…I’ll have to decide if I can part with them!
