Beginning the Project for "Autumn Trees"

This post is very overdue. This Thread painting was begun last fall. I used a photograph I took in a park  near to me.             
The Photograph is simplyfied to Lines.

                                                               
                                                               A stencil is cut
                                                      The Backgound is airbrushed
                                                The Free Motion embroidery is begun

Here you can see how I am using the original source Photograph as Inspiration.


                                             The piece is complete and ready for framing.

This is a close up to show the texture the stitches create.

The trees have been shaded and the stitching of the foreground has begun.
                    

The background has been airbrushed onto silk with dyes and the beginings of the machine ebroidered trees in the background are shown' 
These two pieces were part of the collection of my work on display at a small show this weekend. Seven of us had what is becoming known as a "pop up Gallery". This was held at an old Pickle factory, that has been repurposed and is now an area rented to Acupuncture practioners, Chiripractic Doctors and anyone who needs space to work.

From Sketch to Stitch.
This Pastel painting was the inspiration for a small embroidery of trees in the sun. The threads that I chose were yellows, greens blues and purples.

Well here are a couple of pieces I am working on at the moment. Both pieces are inspired by local landscapes, that have been photographed, one has been sketched in colored pencil and then I have painted the silk background, before I  have begun the the thread painting.
