Another tapestry done.

I don't know where the last 2 weeks have gone. I have managed to see a couple of exhibitions; Real Nowhere Land at Manningham Gallery and About Time at Bundoora. Both were worth the trip (both galleries are on the other side of town from where I live). We were early at the Manningham one and bided our time sitting in a shelter made from old slides painted pink which I loved. However as usual, we left the camera at home. At Bundoora, the homestead was worth a trip on its own, beautiful place. We had a meeting of our tapestry group at the Spinners and Weavers last Saturday and it was good to welcome 2 people from the SWTAFE course. Some people worked, mostly we chat and exchange information. I have managed to finished another of the exercises called Leti, a difficult piece to interpret.  I decided to put it 5/6 ft away from me as it is so complex and weave what I can see. Hope that works.

I wanted to put a  copy of the original beside my woven one and although I have downsized it to 1.23MB, it says it is too big.
C'est  la computer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Michelle
Thanks for you comment. It took ages but I am happy with it. How did you go with the Picasso one? I hope to start that this week but I am confused by the colours.

Hi Glennis, it looks great. I love the half passing. I was wondering what technique you could use for that shading. I look forward to how you do the Picasson greys. I am actually not that sorry that I am not doing the course, this looks like a challenging assignment.

Hi MAry
You are right, the course is very challenging and it would have been more difficult without the time at RMIT. Hopefully with the challenge will come improvement.

I've finished the Picasso one - I'm very pleased with it ... even though it's my representation, rather than an exact copy, heh heh!

I've just done the double half hitches I've used to separate the panels, and will start this one during the week ;)
