Last night I finished my experimental ‘stitched sketch’. Previously I had cut pieces of material and stitched around them to make a well known view of Edinburgh, from Calton Hill. I continued with the shading using the sewing machine and added a few highlights in white canvas material. Sticking them down with a little glue and machine stitching over the top.
I’m very pleased with how it looks in the frame, and I think the frayed edges and free flowing stitched lines make it look like one of my sketches.
See the following links for more details and images from my previous work on the stitched sketch.
