Lone Tree WIP
I have been quietly chipping away at the orange and ochre dunes...
... just a narrow strip remain and they will meet the sky.
I was a little concerned at one point that it would get too boring and bland with such a restricted colour palette. I am not worried any more.
I am oh so close, one side almost touches...
... the other nearly there too. I am in the middle of covering one of the last dunes with needle weaving - a single strand of cotton onto silk. The subtle but structured blending of shade sits nicely against the more 'random' shading of the variegated threads and I like the super smooth surface it creates.. but it is oh so fiddly to do, especially when I need to avoid catching the already stitched parts. Slowly does it...
Now the end is in sight, I am keen to get it finished. Not so much because I want to finish it but I am looking forward to seeing it finished - if that makes any sense. Besides, the 'doodles' and ideas for other things are mounting fast both in my note books and in my head.
Only a few more dunes and then.. the large blue sky.
