This is the project after all the low-relief (and a few french knots) have been added. Not looking much like a beach right now, is it?! I know from my colored pencil work that the beginning layers you put in often don’t look anything like the final work — people become orange and hot pink before they look like a real person! If there wasn’t a point behind this, I’d be tempted to turn it into a shooting star of some sort. But I think it will look much better as it progresses… So, I’m off to add more, which is the focus of week three of the class.
Adding more… that’s something that’s hard for me, whether I’m writing, drawing, or stitching.
