Connor # 3
I have a new piece started but I'm only going to show small pieces in this post.
The entire piece will be 45" x 45" or there about. Because it is a big piece and I really don't want to do a lot of picking out stitches I decided that I would work on a study first. This is another of my creations in PhotoShop and is printed on linen cotton canvas. I'm very happy with the color and texture that I get with this fabric. It will be the first time I've used it so I that is another reason for the sample.
I am not exactly a patient person and I hate to waste time. Often I tell myself that I am wasting time doing the same thing twice. That I'm going to be bored working on the same thing again. And sometimes I do get bored but I learn something each time I work so that, hopefully, I will improve the next time.
If anyone who reads this has a good collection of thread for portraits that they like I sure would love to hear from you. If you look closely at Connor's face and neck you will note that I used brown tone threads on his neck and red tone threads on his face. Which do you like best?
