First contemporary paint and embroidery 2019

This weekend I finished my first ink/watercolor and contemporary embroidery piece. As part of exploring art this year and pushing boundaries I wanted to create a piece that reflected that.

The colors reflect the vibrancy and energy I want in my life  this year. The embroidered stitches are simple running stitches, cross stitch and satin stitches using DMC cotton floss.

The fabric I used is 28 count Belfast linen. While I am happy with the finished piece I will experiment with  linen dress fabric to see if it creates a tighter finish.

Hope you have a great week!

Charlie
