Textile abstractions…

Textile abstractions…

Ive been playing around with paint, viewfinders and abstraction for my current module, i was pretty pleased with my little experiments which you can see in THIS recent post. With some inspiration from Cas Holmes, i looked from a window and used the sewing machine to capture the view.

First i coloured my fabric with acrylic paint and worked from photos and another experimental stitch drawing. Then i used my viewfinder in the same way as before to abstract areas. It didnt work out so well and looked better as the original piece. However i did create a stitch/applique version of my first painting and abstracted it in the same way.
