Sneak Peak 1

You will probably recognise this image from the Colour Palette for October.  I selected an area of the image and cut it because I wanted to show the overlapping shapes of the fungi and the lovely ferns.

This is for three projects I'm working on...

To start, I'm designing a range of tapestries for a workshop I'm tutoring for Melbourne Arts Festival on Saturday 29 October.  We will be designing and weaving a small tapestry in a day.

I've registered for the Sketchbook Project 2012 and have chosen Stitches and Fold which has filled up already!  There's still time to sign up before the deadline of 31 October 2011, although you won't be able to pick Stitches and Folds.  This image immediately spoke folds, and I want to explore woven shibori and double cloth.

Finally, the colours are really really autumnal and would lend themselves to a beautiful tweed or suiting fabric, which I love designing, so that will be explored later.

On the left is a quick colour study in water colour and a rough textural sketch in pencil and charcoal.

So now you've seen my latest project I'll pop off and work on a collage next.

Watch this space...
