Just a quick progress update before I potentially lose power. The weather report is for about five hours of freezing rain this afternoon on top of the snow which fell overnight. UGH!!
So here is “Oil on Water” over the past week.The flash rather bleached it out in this photo. (I never notice these things at the time).I was pleased with the first ‘flame’ motif….….but it’s pretty ‘glaring’ as I add the second larger one….The dark background is doing its work in toning it down and absorbing some of that colour.
Right now I’m pondering a number of colour choices. I plan to remove the blue/purple dump dye wool in the middle of the blue in the middle, and I’m considering a number of options. I’m also thinking that I will change the slightly lighter blue upward sweeps on the left. I thought they would be much more prominent and I think that side needs more interest than they will provide.
The whole thing is like a voyage of discovery, and it’s a lot of fun to watch what emerges from my hook.
Now to hunker down and wait until the freezing rain storm passes. SPRING….where are you????
