Piece in progress

The development of an image before stitching can be satisfying  - and especially the digital elements.  Planting started as a linocut as several of my pieces do because I want to keep that flat look, and also to keep those random-ish cutting lines showing as part of the background - even though in this case they are not in the same colour as the figure outline itself.
The process adds to add, and adds to take away, often painstaking and long-winded, the results can give me real pleasure.  The image above, which is nearly there, derived largely from these previous steps.
Now the image is at the next 'simmering' stage before printing onto cloth ready for stitching.
