A couple more of my embroideries for a local exhibition. The photos of the framed finished pictures aren't very good so I am posting them as works in progress.
The first is machined in layers then ripped back and distressed in order to reveal layers of colour.
This second embroidery is hand sewn and cut back. I have used silks and cottons of varying weight, hand dyed in order to create the layers. The variations in colour are often due to the changing colours on the hand dyed cloth, often space-dyed.
