on the Prairie points project, but it hadn’t occurred to me how long it would take to work 50cm of stars! Here are some of the other photos/sketches I took.
Villandry – Garden of Love
Quarr Abbey IOW, Church Door
Outside View of Church
Sketch book Villandry
Kitchen Roof and chimneys, Fontevraud Abbey
I’ve done these before, but not stitched, apart from some hand stitched tonal values years ago. The machine wasn’t keen, but here are the results.
Exercise 1 Colour Circle using Primary & Secondary Colours
Exercise 2 Colour Circle using Primaries only
Exercise 3 Stitched Tonal Values
Paint Exercise Tonal values
Painted Colour Circle with Tonal Values
Tonal Values with Tertiary (?) colours
I used acrylics for the painted parts, and was a bit(!) heavy handed with the black. If there is a lot more painting on paper to do, I shall have to buy some gouache colours as I only have Brusho (which needs mixing) or water soluble pencils and crayons, as I have found these more use recently.
