Gosh Olga that looks like a very orderly studio! Father Christmas brought me a North Face gilet - very thin (can't bear being overwhelmed by voluminous clothing) with the teeniest of tiny feathers in it and I have hardly taken it off since. I don't think it was cheap but boy it really works.
Oh and by the way it is nice to put a face to the writing/work/name!
Gorgeous colours to brighten a dull dull day here! And wonderful photo of you, Olga, with your lovely work.
Meabh, yes, I do try to keep my working space tidy, but there are lots of areas which are much more tip-like, out of shot!Marja-Leena - it is indeed warming to work with bright colours, but the size and weight of the work is much more warming!
Love these colors and the composition Olga. What is the size? It is such a joyous drawing, I would love to see it in person. Did you paint the fabric?
Thanks Paula. The fabric at present is roughly just over two metres tall and one and a half metres wide at present, but as I stitch quite intensively, the dimensions will change a bit by the end.I develop the image digitally - in this case it was from a pencil drawing and some soft pastel work, scanned into the computer and played around with. And then with the big pieces I have them printed digitally by a company who prints for individual artists as well as for couture designers.When the printed cotton comes back to me I start the hand quilting.
