More stitched color studies, are you getting tired of these yet? I’m still having fun with them and the results are often different then I expect.
These are the two hand stitched ones completed this week. The one on the left needs to be stretched over a board as the fabric is buckling. The one on the right, I made a frame as it had too much blue surrounding it otherwise.
And here are the machine stitched ones. The woven one on the right has too many colors of the same value and the proportions of colors are not working for me.
This cropped version looks better to me, what do you think?
And I had promised to show you some of the fabric I am dyeing. This is last week’s set of blue-green and red-orange. I always have trouble with blue-green. It usually turns out too green even though I add extra blue dye. These fabrics are definitely more blue-green than the green fabric I dyed but still don’t read blue-green on their own. Some of the paler ones have a more blue-green look though. The darker fabrics are neutralized by mixing the two colors together. Always fascinating to see how the fabric turns out though! 😉
