Well January was rather a wipe out for me – but back in the studio again now, determined to finish the little piece that I had started in my last post.
This small piece is a “test” piece for a larger piece of work – in terms of technical “how to”. I want to do a picture where you “look through doors” to a glimpsed view and here is how today went.
Not enough “view” the doors are too closed.
Too much view – the doors are too open.
TO get the “foreshortened view” that I was after was proving a bit problematic, as doors and the image were made from one piece of fabric. Next step – cut the doors off! (eeeek)
(This would be why I subtitle any workshops I teach “Destroy to Create)
Ummmm – not sure – place the doors back in, but tucked behind the ground fabric, which makes them smaller – and gives a view of the image behind. After rather a lot of un-picking of stitching ….
I think I will sleep on it.
