Embroideries: Hastening Away
|Hastening Away by R de Heer|
In this little stitchery I have three little creatures hastening away from hot times to cooler, more verdant places. My intention was to form these creatures from the pale negative space in a pattern of aqua squiggles on a darker ink wash.
Where their anatomy was colonised by the two latter elements I fudged and framed and finagled the background detail to cover the pattern and wash, to leave the critters their substance.
The title came to me after I had taken the scrap from the ring.
I always use Exotic Lights by Colour Streams now for the stitching.
