Texture... gives an extra dimension can add expression and finally emotions.
So when i am creating a piece of art Imalways consider the dimension of my work, colour and composition.
This is a photo of a tree bark this a change a bit in photoshop. One piece of bark, the same one photo but four different editions.
Some of them are more soft, some more sharp and finally different feeling of see them.
I began from collage, layer by layer as in nature. I am using only natural dyeing materials on the raw linen stretch on the wooden frame.
At this point i begin consider where i will might place a stitches adding more texture.
French knots as they are my favourite stitches, I also like a running stitches, found objects etc.
