Colour Play

Ruth came to visit and we played a bit with colour. I have an obsession with Chuck Close and his amazing knowledge of colour.

A quick sample and lots more work to do on getting my colours to work the way I want.

No machine work this week

So this week is back to the loom. I have to weave off the 4 blanket warp I have on the loom. One hour of play a day is not enough for this job. I will have to do at least 3 hours a day hopefully. I am hoping to get some time on the sewing machine. I am excited to play more with my pixelated image. My friend Julie Ryder has come up with a different way of printing the image so will also give that technique a try.

55cm woven and about bout 7mts to go, Belinda Jessup
