My self-guided Monthly Art Project for the first half of 2019 is to make a 30x30cm (12x12in) textile sketch that is based on the view from my studio overlooking Copacabana and Allagai Bay. This is the fifth month – one month to go!
Despite living on the east coast with a view to the south, we still get some fabulous sunsets.
Time for a quick digital sketch and some fabric audition. I especially wanted to capture the broad arc of clouds.
I decided to go for the sheen of cotton satin for the gold band. I wavered over the water fabric but ultimately went for the more solid charcoal so that the stitching does not compete with the pattern in the fabric.
Here’s a close up of the stitching
