TAST meets EDM!

I know, when in doubt, do everything, my policy in life and in art!

Finished work which incorporates a couple of the challenge stitches in the Take a Stitch Tuesday (TAST) ongoing project. This is a modern piece of Japanese printed fabric, changed with stitching, drawing and painting over.

Seen as a whole, about 30 x 18, and

a detail in a vain attempt to show stitches closer up. The thing is that this kind of work tends to blend so well that you kind of have to be there to get it! it's all about subtle texture, and that's very hard to convey with the camera. Anyway, that's my excuse!

And here's today's EDM drawing of a begonia using ink pen and Caran d'Ache watercolor crayons.
