The sling is almost finished being wet felted, (the above photo is before any water hit the fiber) I am fine tuning the shaping with hand forming, and then I' will be finished with the YELLOW Challenge! (Which I think was really more of a challenge in time management than anything else!!)
I mentioned in previous posts that I have been going to an open studio set up for life drawing on Tuesday evenings. I am really loving the way my mind thinks when I am staring at naked people...hmmm what kind of clothes can they be wearing? How can I get pattern and color into an image that basically is just the human form against a white wall? I am experimenting with patterning the shadows - love that! and this past Tuesday well, heck I just put pattern all around and on the model. I was thinking Gondolier but I think he turned out a bit more Polynesian.
