I also have to admit I was bitten by the sketching and watercolor bugs - badly. As a matter of fact I was out today in the pouring rain (in my car) sketching.
Now it's time to get back into the swing of things. I will be doing a dyeing workshop in late Fall early Winter. But in the here and now I am working on the Shibori commission, Coastal 2. I got the go ahead from the purchaser on this last round of dyed pieces, they are cut to size and I will be putting the piece together and shipping it out with the next two weeks.
This is the original
This was my first attempt at a copy (too light)
This is the latest selection of shibori dyed pieces. They have to be done all at once and that makes for a long drawn out process of wrapping, tying and dyeing.
This is almost identical to the original. I have cut the pieces to size and will start the piecing today. Then on to the framing...
