If anything could make me give up textiles I think it would be painting. Having said that, this is not painting it's instant gratification using alcohol ink felt tips and a gold promarker, but it makes me think that I could learn to paint. And that's the problem, the world is full of brilliant painters and I would just be another mediocre student. The world is not full of textile artists so I think I'll stick with what I know and enjoy. I think I need to find a way to translate these drawings to stitch, I can see a lot of work ahead!
This piece is A3 cartridge paper and I have selected some Acer leaves, fennel, honeysuckle, poppy and shepherds purse drawn in layers. I have not played with the positive/negative shapes in this drawing, I think that makes it less dynamic than the last one.
